MariaFrancesca's 16th Birthday and Her Confirmation
Our daughter, MariaFrancesca reached two milestones on the same weekend. She turned 16 on Friday and she made her "Confirmation" on Sunday. We are all so proud of her and Lisa's presence could be felt everywhere.

Daniela continues her college studies and working part time -- she is maintaining a very busy schedule. She is very much like her mother in that regard.

Lorenzo, III is also doing very well -- his work keeps him very busy.

I too am trying to live as Lisa would want me to. I am slowly getting back into the swing of things. Our lives have been profoundly changed, but we have no alternative. Lisa's guidance and presence are felt everywhere. I am so thankful that she is a part of me.

I believe that Lisa has now learned of the beautiful compassion that you have shown to us over the last month and I am sure that her beautiful smile is beaming.

We are currently going through a range of emotions -- we cry, we think and often we reminisce and laugh about the wonderful times that we had with Lisa on this Earth. The family misses her more than we can describe with words, but we are happy that she is no longer suffering and we thank God for our time together.

Our 32 years together have been as beautiful as anyone could ever imagine -- reflection can be wonderful. I can feel her presence everywhere.

Your kindness has been overwhelming and we hope that you can attend the services once we find out the dates.

If you can attend we would like to ask that you wear black ONLY IF YOU LIKE BLACK. Do not feel obligated to wear black for Lisa. She would not want you to mourn -- she loved to host parties and she would love for you dress as you would for nice occasion -- California Casual - Nice but not fancy.

If you have any questions, please email me.

I have very sad news this evening. Lisa passed away this afternoon at 2:30pm. She fought valiantly to stay with us. I was speaking to her the entire time as the doctors and staff worked on her -- I know that she could hear me, but she just could not hold on any longer. I will post more details later. Please do not call me for a couple of days.
