Browsing interesting personal websites is often fun (as in clamps
and Coding Machines
). But sometimes it can break your heart.
That's the case with Eric Meyer
's open grieving after losing a child. I found his website when I learned about rebeccapurple
, a special color added to the CSS specification as a tribute to his daughter. As I read his family's experiences, I found myself crying and feeling an aching pain for these people I've never met.
Eric shared his experiences as they happened. You can find them here
. His family's story is tragic and emotional and wonderfully written.
(I normally try to keep a backup of external sites but I'm not grabbing one here. I want to be respectful of Eric and his family's potential future choices to remove their story.)
