    More than a mere status update

    Gina and I did indeed talk last night. We also cried, screamed, argued, accused, denied, walked away, came back and tried again and so on.

    We are both really hurt and angry and the issues between us are complex and easily misunderstood. As is often the case in such situations between people who care about each other, but who end up here, we are both right and we are both wrong.

    On the other hand a few days in Hell can sober the mind and dissipate the anger as few things can and when two people care enough to try and remain respectful to one another despite their pain communication is at least possible. Even if solutions seem out of reach.

    The one thing that has been strange throughout this was going through all of this in such a public way. First at the Farpoint Convention and secondly on line through Facebook and so on. This has been both very difficult and embarrassing to us and yet, at the same time, the source of great support and compassion. For those of you who have known us for any length of time you know this is not how we usually conduct our private business and it’s been very painful for both of us.

    I want to apologize first and foremost to our children who through no fault of their own have had to endure the emotional brunt of this. I want to apologize to all our friends and other family members for putting them trough this as well. I especially want send a special apology and thank you to Dawn, Dennis, Jo, Paul, Steve and to my friend Pete for being there for both of us.

    I am so sorry for all of this. Please believe this and try to find the grace to forgive me.

    In the end Gina and I have decided to try and reconcile.
    We have both apologized to each other and agreed to redouble our efforts to work things out.
    We’re taking it slowly, but we both want to try and that’s something.

    To that end, last night, we each placed our wedding bands back on each other’s hands.

    I wish you both the very best :) Be kind to each other, show respect for each other, try to find the humor in any situation. It is never easy but it is almost always worth it :)

    I am glad to hear this news Frank. I have been holding back in the wings as I know many people have been there for you guys, plus Dawn fills me in. Life has ups and down and I will be there if you need. Lord knows I hopes there will be ones for me as well.
