    Laurie, I am at a loss of words. I know what you are going through and if you ever need to talk to someone, please give me a call. I wish I had the opportunity to meet Sean, but remember, he loved you. That is what is going to keep you motivated in the years to come. I love you, your Mom and Dad and will always be here if you need someone who just recently went through what you are facing.

    Sending all my love and prayers to help you deal with losing the love of your life.

    Forever her for you, Diane Filadoro
