Late Alice In Chains singer Layne Staley’s mother Nancy said in a newsletter in January:

Dear Friends,

Our family is coming up for air after an incredibly sad year. Too many passings…and bad news. We know that we’re not the only ones.

I stood toe-to-toe and face-to-face w/2018 and told it, in no uncertain terms, that it had better have some kindness in store for us.
