Dear Maureen, Mr. Lawrence Morton, Sr., Deanna, Robert and Mr. Lawrence Morton, Jr. My prayers are with you during this most difficult time. God said he would not take our difficulties away but He would give us His strength and love to get through it. Keep close to God, I promise He will give you His strength and courage to get through this painful and sad time. When you feel sad and miss her, grieve but most importantly ask yourself "how would my Mother, Wife, Grandmother, want me to carry on in her memory. I leave you with this poem: "Now that I am gone, remember me with smiles and laughter. And if you need to cry, cry with your father, children, siblings or significant other who walks in grief beside you. And when you need me, put your arms around anyone and give them what you need to give to me. There are so many who need so much. I want to leave you with something -- something much better than words or sounds. Look for me in the people I've known or helped in some special way. let me live in your heart as well as in your mind. You can love me most by letting your love reach out to our loved ones, by embracing them and living in their love. Love does not die, people do. So, when all that's left of me is love, give me away as best you can." ~ Lorraine Maegerle, Ossining, New York
