“The angels came and took my lady to a place of peace and no pain. I was by her side at our home and she was never in pain and passed away peacefully.
Marie has been the love of my life for over 22 years. Thanks for all the prayers
We have cruised the Caribbean, been to the Vatican and seen the sounds and sites of Alaska.
We have watched Tiffany and Sean and Jack and Cole start their fantastic life as a family. We ate at the best and worst restaurants and spent our life together enjoying life to its fullest.
We watched the sunrise and sunset holding each other close. We were meant to be together from the first time we met.
The story of our hair stylist introducing the Jewish boy from Pittsburgh who had the best daughter ever plus a dog and a cat to the Cuban girl that had never been married, no kids, no animals and yet we were the perfect two hearts to join.
Those that know our family best know we believe all of our family that has passed have been intertwined with the Hawk. So my beautiful lady is now flying with the Hawks in the lords heaven and will watch over me until I can join her and see the world from high above.
Love you lady forever ”
