To Lynn, my beloved ex-husband and devoted father of our beautiful children: I want to thank you for allowing us to care for you and love you , as we always have; and for teaching us to be strong and not afraid of losing you, for you were the pillar of our existence throughout these difficult times. I admired your steadfast love and determination to provide for Frank and Gina long after you have gone and I will always be thankful to have shared 23 years of my life with you. In sickness and in health we raised two of the most loving and gifted children. Let this be a testament to our friends that family is all that matters. Please watch over us as we complete our journey as you have. Until we meet again, let the heavens rejoice. Til death do us part. Maria
