A Letter

Dear Terri,

I wanted to express my deep appreication to you for being there for me when I was going through one of the toughest times of my life. Those late nights, when I was staying with you and your daughter and agonizing about the ardurous road ahead, you talked to me, gave me advice, and showed me a compassion and understanding that I so desperately needed. You were there for me, and I thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

My parents really enjoyed that time that you and your daughter joined us for dinner. I knew you and my dad would get along great. You two had similar stories about the "old country" and your wacky families. I will always remember and cherish that evening, with some of the most important people in my life.

Your daughter is like a sister to me, one of my best friends on Earth. And you, you were like second mother to me in the short time I knew you. Thank you, for everything. I send you much love.

Ti amo,



What else can be said to someone who has just been given one month to live ?

What you said was perfect.

What better way to know your life has meant something, than to have another tell you how deeply you have touched theirs?
