"I have boxes and boxes of cards, letters, prayers, kindergarten schools’ letters, tweets, e-mails. In a way, at first, it worked against me because it felt like I was letting people down. But I was crying reading them. My wife was reading them - I couldn’t read them - while I was on the couch. She’d read them all to me. In a way, you feel like you’ve done something right for these people. And there’s no way I can get back to them."
-- Remy on the mend
