    I love this photo. It reminds me of the day that your mom showed me around her home before we picked you up from the hospital. She was so proud of her kids and grandkids and loved you all. My prayers are with you over the coming days and beyond. Love, Kathleen, Martin, Harry and Rosie

  4. Edgardo, Stephen and the fury circus condolence:

    Dear Laurie and family:

    Sometimes words fail to arrive when we need them. The harder you try to think, the faster they escape you.  When a loved one leaves us it is painful and disconcerting. Sometimes anger sets in because there is no answer or explanation. 

    Those of us who are not as close to the pain can (and will) put our arms around you and hold you for a second. That is what I was trying to do, when some words appeared. “it is just a transition. What is important is whether you love Mom, and if she loved you?” The answer is a resounding YES in both counts. Love is imperfect but it is love. And love destroys death. Love is what Mom took with her and love is what she left to all of you. 

    Peace of heart to all,
    Edgardo and family

    Dear Kate:

    Please accept our condolences on your Mom’s passing. It was a pleasure to visit with her during the kids ballgames last year. I know she really enjoyed watching the boys play.

    We know you were very close and that this is a trying time for you and the family. You are in our thoughts & prayers.
