  1. Mia Cara Lucia,

    Words cannot express our sorrow during this time. It is difficult to lose a treasured lifelong friend who knew your heart in good times and bad. We had a unique friendship, Lucia. My heart is heavy but you always will be with me in spirit. My consolation is that you are no longer suffering and are at peace with our dear Lord.

    I have treasured memories of our three trips to Italy together. Thank you for those memories and for being a special godmother to our Carolyn. She loved her Comare Seal.

    Rest in peace, cara Lucia.

    With love always, Francesca
