“I’m still learning how to best support my own process and emotions as well as family members at this time, and am grateful for the space to do so.
I won’t personally comment further on anything around the separation, but please know that your kind words and support mean the world to me. Thank you for understanding our desire for privacy while we navigate the next phases of our lives”
