Chère Famille,

Perdre un être proche que l'on aime c'est perdre aussi un peu de soi-même. Lorsque j'ai connu cette épreuve, lors du deuil de maman, j'ai eu l'impression pendant des semaines de m'enfoncer dans un abîme sans fin. J'ai cru que plus jamais je ne reprendrai goût à la vie.
Et pourtant le temps passe, apaise la douleur et la vie reprend son cours.
Ces mots ne te seront peut-être pas d'un grand réconfort, Je t'embrasse de toute mon affection.

Meme, we miss you dearly. You have kept the family so close even miles away. May you have peace in heaven and reunite with Nonno, as he waits for you. We love you and will cherish the memories forever...

Chère Tante Mariuccia
Tu étais la cousine germaine de maman qui est morte en février 2010, Marie Arini. Elle s'appelait comme toi Marie arini. Tu vas beaucoup nous manquer à moi à tes enfants tes petits enfants tu vas manquer à tous ceux qui t'aimaient. Je regrette que la distance nous a empêchés de nous voir souvent que trop d 'années sont passées à cause de cette distance. Tu n'es pas morte, tu resteras toujours dans nos coeurs, dans nos penées. Ta jolie voix française restera une source de vie pour nous. Je n'oublierai pas cette voix, cette couleur si particulière. Je suis profondèment attristé par ta mort. Philippe Arini

Maria, we have missed you since you moved out of the neighborhood, and will miss you more now. You were a good neighbor and friend. Thank you for watching over Anthony and Josie like any Nana would. I know Gus was at heavens gate waiting for you to help you over, he was always there to help you. I remember when we first moved in, how welcoming you (and Toby) were to us. I love you Maria, and will never forget you!

Dearest Family of Maria Agosta,
I join with so many others who knew Nonna in offering our deepest sympathy on her passing. Although it is little consolation at this sad time, it should be of some satisfaction to know that in her passing you can commemorate the end of a very long and productive life.
The measure of a life well-lived is not in how much money one has or what possessions they have accumulated, but rather through the lives they touched and the sorrow they leave behind. If the outpouring of sympathy on her loss is any indication, and it most certainly is, you can proudly and confidently say that her indeed was a life well-lived.
May you find peace and comfort in knowing that her loss is felt by all who knew and loved her.
In Sympathy,
Bernardo Higuera and family
