Some day we will be together again in New York, how about that! Sophie is always looking for you and she takes good care of me.I hope you liked the party, I did the best I could.Be well, Lionel, I love you more than Life, Vinny November 28, 2008 Lionel, You were such a sweet and loving man. You will be so missed. Thank you for your joy and kindness and allowing me to be your friend. November 11, 2008 Our prayers are with all of your during this time. Lionel was a wonderful and loving person and will be surely missed. Here is a poem I carry with me where ever I go. I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS TO THOSE I LOVE AND THOSE WHO LOVE ME When I am gone; release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do. You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears, Be happy that we had so many years. I gave you my love, you can only guess How much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, But not it’s time I traveled on alone. So grieve a while for me if grieve you must. Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It’s only for a while that we must part, So bless the memories within your heart. I won’t be far away, For life goes on. So if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear All of my love around you soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a smile and “WELCOME HOME” November 13, 2008 Our memories of you and your love for life will carry us on until we meet again. Your friends and family are in our prayers always.
