Fortunately, many of my old co-workers have sent their well wishes and condolences while they are still navigating what I’m sure are turbulent times at Google. Naturally, my wonderful wife and my wonderful child have also been here to cheer me on and comfort me.
They have shown me that, despite any challenges I may be experiencing, I still have much to be grateful for.
