Several members of my family asked for a copy of this, and I thought it would be a fitting tribute to post it here for everyone to see: Ed and I often say - to each other and others - that Gavin saved our life.
Gavin chose a Mommy who overshared in a very public way. We chose what lessons we needed to learn, what message we wanted to deliver and what our mission should be.
Gavin proved them wrong on both counts. She was a caring mother, my own mother has told me so many stories of how she worked so hard to keep up her family and sacrificed so much for her children.
Gavin was sent here to this Earth to work through us to inspire others. We were all convinced that we were her favorite, because she made everyone feel like they were.
Thank you to everyone who came to honor Gavin today.
We were two single people who met late in life, set in our ways and you could say we were rather self absorbed. I wrote nearly every single day of his life - and shared some incredible moments. Grandma will never be too far from us ever again.
Not because of my writing - but because they found hope and inspiration in this little boy and his incredible journey. Gavin is continuing to change people. Choosing to donate his organs was the easiest and most difficult decision we have ever made.
This is the last gift that I can give to her, my caring words, and the knowledge that I tried my best to express how wonderful she was. My grandmother taught me all these things and so much more. She would come and talk to the class when we had American History week in school; she loved to tell stories, and was really good at it.
We arrive here with everything we need to know and a clear purpose set out for our lives. She loved to people watch from her favorite bench right outside of Times Square.If you have been asked to write and give a loved one’s eulogy—a speech honouring their life—at a funeral or memorial service, you probably have mixed emotions about it.
My Grandmother passed away last week. It has been the hardest thing that I’ve ever had to deal with on a personal level in my entire life. I’m still not really ready to resume my “normal” life, but writing is something that helps me gather myself, and gain perspective.
We are home and exhausted. Thank you to everyone who came to honor Gavin today. It meant the world to us to see family from all over, friends from far and wide, familiar faces and yesterday's strangers that are today's friends.
