Dear Mom,
I wish it could of ended differently between us,
I am sorry that we couldn't communicate better.
Your 82nd birthday in heaven will now be followed by a joyfull gathering in Colorodo where we will all be in spirt, if not in person.
I must admit that I had a difficult time with your passing and the circumstances surrounding it. But it is never to late to say Thanks, I am sorry, and I love you, I always tried to help when you would let me. Please hold a seat for me at the card table up there, and give my regards to Eddie, Jenny, and Al. I'll be along eventually, but hopefully not just yet!
Again Thanks for everything...Love Tommy

I didn't know Marie well but always enjoyed speaking to her when we saw each other around Bayonne. She was always very cheerful. We had many conversations about what life was like in earlier times. I do miss seeing and chatting with her. She was a very nice woman and I will always remember her fondly.

Dear Grandma,

It has taken me quite some time to actually express my thoughts and feelings for you. As I think of the times we have spent together over the past years I am overwhelmed with emotions, both sorrow and happiness. It has been rough to see you leave us, but through your morning I have come to celebrate your life. You have always been a symbol of love and caring towards Matt, Dad, and myself. Through these past couple of months you have shown great determination and strength. I hope that I, as the man you helped raise me to be, can show such love, strength, and devotion towards my family. I just wanted you to know that I love you, have loved you, and will always love you. Through this experience I have gained more appreciation for my family and the time we all have left together. You have lived a hard but good life, and I know you are finally amongst the Saints looking down upon us in peace. I will always remember you and hold a special place for you in my heart. I love you.

Dear Grandma,

I spent the night alone with my thoughts of you last night reflecting on what you meant to me during our short time together. It’s still hard to believe that someone I’ve known all my life is no longer there. I suppose we take for granted the time we have here on this earth and the people we spend our time with. I looked over the gallery of photos through your life, watching you age and grow just as you watched me, my brother, and my father grow. I had never really gotten a chance to see pictures of you in your youth, to see you at my age with a life full of potential, good times, and hard times. I felt a deep connection with you at that moment realizing you were just like me once.
I also felt some regret that we didn’t know each other better; you were a large influence in our lives when we were young, but we became distant as we grew older. I guess I wish I was able to really talk to you and let you know about the men me and my brother have grown up to be. I wish I could tell you to be proud that you raised a good son who was able to raise two fine sons of his own. I wish I had known you better in my life time; at times I wanted to talk with you but didn’t know what to say or how to say it.
It was hard watching your decline in the past year, but I admired your resilience to the events in your life. That you lived much longer than the doctors had originally diagnosed, and found the strength to live day by day through the chemo. I know that my father meant the world to you, that moving out here meant a lot to him, and that you found strength in each other. I’m happy that your last few months here in Colorado brought you and my father closer together, and I hope you found happiness here with us even till the end.
I’ll always remember your little quirks that made us laugh, and I know where I got my sarcasm from. I’ll remember your sharp tongue even at Balfour when you moved in. I don’t know if you were trying to make us laugh, but it brought a smile to my face. In that respect I hope you know that you’ve touched many lives, that you will be remembered, and that you were always loved.
I hope you find peace wherever you are and you watch over us. Know that the day you passed was quite a beautiful day. While driving home I remember seeing clouds moving in over the mountains, on a day that reminds you of how beautiful the world is. I remember seeing the sun breaking through in patches, it seemed as though the heavens were coming down to meet you. Then shortly after you passed on it snowed to say good bye. I hope that your life was filled with joy and that we were a great part of that joy and that you are proud of us. You will be missed and I love you.


Love always,

Matt

Before my mom’s death I have been having dreams of my mom and my grandparents (her parents who died many years ago). One of the trades that my grandfather had was a bus driver. I had a very vivid dream of my grandfather in front of the old house in Bayonne with the bus stopped and my mom lying next to the bus with my grandfather and me discussing when he is going to pick her up and put her on the bus for her final ride. As my mom was peacefully passing away on April 4, 2009 I whispered this bus dream into her ear. She was semiconscious and could not speak at the time, but she became teary eyed from the story. I choked up during the story too. After composing myself I said “if you see grandpa driving the bus, it’s OK to get on.” She died soon after.

Dear Mom: The last nine months had its phases in the form of trimesters much like a pregnancy, except this pregnancy birthed you into the next world. It was initiated with a lot of arguments about moving you to be with me as your health started to rapidly decline. In trimester-I starting in late June 2008 I helped you in Bayonne NJ to set up in home health care. Then in trimester-II starting in late September 2008 you move to Louisville CO to be with me as you went from using a cane, to a walker, then to a wheelchair in the course of three months. Then in trimester-III starting in January 2009 you entered Hospice Care. Finally you were delivered to the hereafter on April 4, 2009. We became closer than ever during the last nine months. It was satisfying to help you during this time even though we both knew you were dying. You delivered me into this world and cared for me; I in turn cared for you and helped to deliver you to the next world in comfort and peace. I know that you are grateful for the care that I gave to you and I’m grateful for the care that you gave to me. This may seem like a balanced situation -- but it is not. I still have a debt that I can’t repay. Love always, Your Son Michael

"As the chaplain at Balfour, where Marie lived the last months of her life, I witnessed Marie's enormous courage as she battled her illness. To those who knew her well, I'm sure this is no surprise. My condolences to her friends and family."
