retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Yesterday's column about the death of my younger sister, Debbie Coupe Rios, brought an outpouring of email and condolences … hundreds of emails from the MNB community offering prayers, positive thinking, stories of shared grieving, and friendship.

I am moved. I am sharing your emails with my family. And I thank you.

I hope you'll understand if I cannot respond to each email individually … at least not right now.

But I would like to pass along the sentiments of one MNB reader, who chose to quote the words of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss…

Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened!!!

Which, I'd like to think, we're doing.
