Oh my sweet Teresa here it is four weeks since you left us. I still can't believe your gone or for sure don't want to. We did have a good run at it even though there are so many things left undone. Who would have guessed when six years ago your friend and housemate John passed and you moved in here with in a few weeks of us meeting it would turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to either of us. I have been trying to do my best to continue on even going to church every week thinking that somehow it will get better, it is not. I am just here going through the motions trying to keep up with the daily routines and not doing very well with it. You helped me so much with so many things. I do know you are in a better place and the pain and suffering is gone for you and I am very happy for that. I am pretty sure you kept a lot of the issues you had to yourself to not bother me with them. I just want you to know you are my world and not real sure how or what to do from here. I know I have to continue on and somehow they keep saying it gets better. Many others have lost loved ones and have been able to continue on, for the life of me I sure can't see how at this point. I am trying to believe that someday we will be together again that day can't come soon enough. Please help me to be strong enough to get through this awful time and complete whatever I am supposed to in my life before I come and spend eternity with the love of my life - I LOVE YOU - David

''Twas the night before Christmas
As I sat by your bed
You laying quietly, ever so still
And I telling stories of times shared long ago
No farewell words were spoken, though you knew the end was near
You were gone before I knew it
No time to say goodbye

Forever in my heart Till we meet again

Your cousin

SISTER

SO MANY YEARS WE SPENT APART
UNABLE TO HEAL OUR BROKEN HEART
AND JUST A FEW SHORT MONTHS AGO
WE FOUND WHAT ALL SISTERS NEED TO KNOW
THAT NO MATTER WHAT PATHS WE CHOSE
THE DOOR FOR US WOULD NEVER CLOSE
AND GRATEFUL I WILL ALWAYS BE
FOR THAT TIME YOU SPENT WITH ME.

Cynthia Zullo

Find peace with our Lord, watch over me and know I hold you in my heart.

Love,
Cynthia
