Just letting you know I have continued praying for your dear family each day. I got the feeling that today I should write to tell you. May God continue to surround you in His love.

Dear Sweet Friends,

We will continue to pray for all of you as you continue your journey through grief. 

Since I recently retired, and my email has changed, I wanted to drop a note to you so that I would get your CB updates at home.  Many of us don't do facebook, and I count on CB to follow your journey.  Please let us know if you plan to take down Ariel's site.  b

RISE UP SLOWLY, ANGEL

Rise Up Slowly, Angel,
I cannot let you go.
Just drift softly 'midst the faces,
In sorrow, now bent low.

Ease the searing anger,
Born in harsh, unyielding truth.
That death could steal my loved one,
From the glowing blush of youth.

Rise Up Slowly, Angel,
Do not leave me here alone.
Where the warmth of mortal essence,
Lies replaced by cold, hard stone.

Speak to me in breezes,
Whispered through the drying leaves.
And caress my brow with raindrops,
Filtered by the sheltering trees.

Rise Up Slowly, Angel,
For I cannot hear the song,
Which calls you through the shadows,
Into the light beyond.

Wrap me in a downy cape,
Of sunshine, warm with love.
And kiss a tear-stained mothers face,
With moonlight from above.

Then, wait for me at sunset,
Beside the lily pond.
And guide me safely homeward,
To your world which lies beyond.

Just spread your arms to take me,
In reunions sweet embrace
And we shall soar together, 
To a different time and place.

Crystal,
I fully understand and feel the same way as you. There are no presents under the tree yet, and none of us are ready for the holiday. Christmas, as it is for you, just reminds us that it was Vinny's favorite and that is the week he was home on Hospice.  So I do know what you are going through. 
I hope in some small way you can enjoy some of it for the sake of the other children, and in Ariel's memory.  Maybe if we try to remember the happy times she had on Christmas…
She touched so many lives.  Her memory will always be with us.
Love,
Sarah www.caringbridge.org/visit/vinnydigerolamo

The tears still come  every time I think of Ari. She was truly an angel. I cherish the memories. Ari would want us to be happy, to celebrate Christmas, even though it hurts like HELLO!
I've lost 7 students over the years. That's painful when it's one on one teaching. Ari was my #7.
Try to carry on and do all the things you did with her. I know it doesn't get any easier without her. We all miss her.I look at her picture from time to time and she keeps me going.
I will always miss her. She touched my heart.

There are no words to comfort you...just know you are STILL in my thoughts ALL the time.  She was a BEAUTIFUL little girl and I KNOW she would want you to go on with your lives...it's HARD...I'm sure, but I don't think she was the selfish kind that would want you to keep on living.  Again, can't imagine what you are going through especially a year since you lost your little girl.

Remembering you,
