    Gregoire family, The last thing that Mimi wrote to me was to keep writing. The day that she passed, the only thing that helped me feel better was the reassurance that she would soon be reuniting with her husband, and what an amazing reunion that would be! That night, Mimi inspired me, and I wrote this poem. I felt that I should share it with you: Tell me you love me, My Happiness, for it is all that I long to hear. Run towards me, My Love, as once again we embrace each other. Shout my name, My Darling, as my lips can once again respond. Sleep by my side, My Beloved, because your place in the bed has been cold for so long. Hold my hand, My Dear, as we think back to when we first met. Show me your smile, My Best Friend, because I have greatly missed it. Why do you cry, My Sweet? Do not mourn for those we have left behind. Soon they will join us in our great joy. Tell me you love me, My Happiness, for it is all that I long to hear. I know that I speak for all of us when I say that she will always be remembered and missed. Love, Becky.

    Al, Maree and Family, Please accept our condolences on the loss of your mother. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person, I know that she meant the world to you. She was a very lucky lady to have such a loving and caring family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. John & Massimo.

    Dear Maree and Family, My deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother. I am happy that I got to meet her briefly after Mass one time at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal at Hampton. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Mary Ellen

    I thought that Florence was a great woman, she was kind, and always willing to listen to what people have to say, she's a remarkable woman, if she faced any obsticles in her life that slowed her down, she would pop right back up and smile, nothing got to that woman, and I think that knowing her was an honor and a pleasure. I remember finding out about Florence passing up to the great beyond to meet her maker. I tear up and grive, but at the same time. I think, no matter what we face, she will be here in spirit, and that's a comfort for many, and she's also at peace. Jesus took her home, she was tired and he gave her eternal rest. I send the entire family my deepest sypathies. I know you'll miss her, and so will I. God bless all the family, and God rest the departed's soul.

    In this time of great sorrow, always remember that she lived her life with grace, good-humor, and courage. We can only hope to live our lives as richly and with such purpose. I am proud and honored to have been her nephew. I’ll never forget my Aunt Mimi. My condolences and love to the family and deepest apology for not being able to be there with you.
