I know. It's craziness. She's crushing hard on a senior, had a summer job...almost a grownup. I'm not ready.

I'm an asshole. I forgot about the existence of this thread. I thought you guys were ignoring me.

Mom is a wreck. She's in Zion now with Don's kids and the families of the other hikers. I'm going to drive down to LA this weekend. The hiking club is having a pot luck or something.

I'm sorry, ES. I almost didn't say anything, because what can you say... just a gesture, I guess. I hope it helps a little.

Hey guys, that's cool, I really do appreciate all the words. Thank you very much.

They have recovered all 7 of the bodies so the search is over, but last I heard they hadn't released the names to the public. All of the hikers were members of the hiking club that my mom and I belong to (that's how she and Don met), so a lot of friends lost a lot of friends in this accident.

That was actually a big source of confusion, nobody was sure exactly who was on the trip. A lot of people assumed my mom was with Don, so they were reaching out to me, but I'm like, "No, she's ok, I just talked to her." And every time someone anyone got in touch with anyone else, it was like, "Oh good, you're ok! Do you know who went on the trip?" We weren't even sure we had all the right people until yesterday.

When we first found out about the accident, they had only recovered 2 bodies, so it has been a sick day and a half slowly ticking the bodies off one by one. They found another one. They found another one. Every couple of hours. They found another one. I'm really fucking relieved that is over.

The club is having a memorial potluck and hike in Placerita Canyon this weekend, so I'm driving down for that. I'm going to stay with my mom in our friend's RV.

Ohh. That's a good one Ari.

I figured things were confusing and chaotic (and sound like they still are), so thought you might be getting a lot of communication.
Totally sucks, not knowing what is going on for so long. I can't imagine.
