I use my phone to access the forum most of the time. That part just looked like white space to me - hence the assumption about Newbie. It never occurred to me there was a sentence in that blank space. Thanks JQS for highlighting it - I had no idea otherwise.
Still a dreadful situation. I feel for Newbie, what a horrible thing. And for Secondary and for you. Do make sure to find someone to talk to. I am so glad you are taking steps to make that happen.
