I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to the Moriconi family. Right now there's no detour around grief, no shortcut through mourning. However 2 Corinthians 4:7 says that God can give us, "... power beyond what is normal", to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. We recover because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, "... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out ". Jesus was referring to the resurrection, this is our amazing hope! The Bible likens our hope to an anchor. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us, keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness. 2 Corinthians 1:3 describes our Creator as, "... the God of all comfort ". One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort be your comfort now during this time of sorrow.

Marie,
Thank you for your beautiful sentiments. Your kindness is heartwarming. I hope our family finds comfort through God's message.

Carol, Bruce, Brian and family: with heartfelt sadness, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy for your loss. In heaven now there are two very sweet souls, both Altoona natives, your mother and ours. So, let the reunion of these two souls begin as one uses colorful language and the other laughs out loud. Our Creator and God will surely enjoy both. May God continue to bless your family.

Ed,
Thank you for your kindness, love and support. Yes, these two sweet ladies are having laughs and speaking colorful polish words in heaven.

So sorry for your loss. Prayers for your family.

Thank you from all of us.
