  1. How do you say a final goodbye?

    Maybe an obituary cannot pass as a tribute; just a simple notice of life passing.

    Maybe it’s too personal to put into words, if only to those who loved her.

    Maybe she was just an ordinary Mom and wife; but certainly not to us.

    Maybe she touched many lives, and left an indelible lasting legacy.

    Maybe those left behind are better off, just because of her.

    Maybe we prefer to remember good times, and not to grieve.

    Maybe the end of her suffering is an overdue blessing.

    Maybe a life, long or short, is all we’re entitled to.

    Maybe God has finally brought her home.

    Maybe some day we’ll stop missing her.

    Maybe we’ll see her again.

    Maybe we can’t say’¦..


    Just, Love you Mom!

  2. Please accept my condolences on the passing of a woman, and a mother to one of the best friends of my childhood, of whom I have frequently thought over the years with the happiest of memories. Joe, Jimmy, Linda…I hope you all are well and living happy lives. Even though our old houses are long gone, our times together on Goodwill St. will always remain a part of me. God bless you all. – Gary Smith (Joe, assuming you have any recollection of who I am…I’d be real happy to receive an email from you letting me know how your life turned out for you – Gary)
