I bare my condolences with my love and respect to your entire family in this sorrowful time:

It will be the little things
that you will remember,
the quiet moments,
the smiles, the laughter.
And although it may seem
hard right now,
it will be the memories
of these little things
that help to push
away the pain
and bring the smiles
back again.

With love,

Danielle M. Romano
