Of Grief, Garlic and Gratitude

Excerpt from Of Grief, Garlic and Gratitude:

On October 10, 2013, I posted the following words on Facebook. While there are only one hundred words in the post, it took me almost an hour to write them.  

Thursday, October 10, 2013

It is with breaking hearts that we want to share with our family and friends that yesterday our beloved son Sam passed away. We were so blessed to have shared his life for more than 20 years, and can’t count all the joyous and love-filled moments we shared with him. We ask for your understanding and patience right now, as we may not respond to messages, emails, texts or calls — but please understand that we so appreciate the outpouring of love. A celebration of his life will happen this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at the Leicester Meeting House.
