People don't like to hear that our observations don't match their story. We view this statement as exaggeration being careless and reckless with the truth, creating an unwarranted false assault on one's reputation. Of course we welcome a retraction, or an opportunity to revisit what was intended but lost in the conversation. We will continue to keep this person in our thoughts and prayers and hope for steady recovery of the body and of the mind.
