I will never forget the last time I saw Aunt Mary. It was the holidays, and though she was tired, she opened her home to us and showered us with affection, gifts, and most important of all, her time and presence. I will miss her very much.

My Dearest Mary,
3 weeks ago today you left this physical world for your spiritual journey to Heaven. Each day I pray and I keep you up to date on our family as I try to live my life without you. Each day is a first for something, and I am trying to live in the moment and accept the waves of pain and loneliness that crash against me as I gasp for air. Our support team continues to be supportive of me, making sure I have food and finding time to make time to help ease the burden of not having you here with me, physically.
I must say that your service was outstanding. Saturday February 13th was a cold, snowy day and despite these conditions and Covid 19 you had around 200 people show up to say good bye. I was so happy for you and I know that you felt all the love and respect from all who attended.
Sister Donna gave a wonderful eulogy. She shared our story and touched on our children, grandchildren and your many talents.
Maggie also spoke and shared the story of your birth as twins and how you came into the world first and how you were the first to go to Heaven, she tied it together very nicely.
Your best friend Laura also spoke and discussed how much she loved you and your journey as friends, and she reminded me how much you love me, which I always love to hear. I then offered all an opportunity for any one else to speak, no one was brave enough to do so, I say this because a few of our friends told me they wished that they had gotten up to speak when they had a chance.
I danced with you to our wedding song Ribbon in the Sky. The Decan, Kevin O'Donnell, then finished the services with stories I shared with him about you (Ace Ventura stories) your love of dancing, music, watching old movies, baking, cooking and always looking to do something nice for someone, you have a heart of gold.
Most of your final wishes I was able to honor. I was able to find a grave site close to my Mom so when family came to visit they can park once and visit you, Mom and Harry, the services were held at Pomierski Funeral Home, it was a single day viewing and funeral, white casket, Cagney and Duke urns were placed with you and rest with you, white flowers, your relaxing music you listened to each night to help you sleep was played.
I prefer not to think about the action of others who decided not to honor a wish of yours, so I will leave that where it lays.
I love you Mary and miss you with all my heart. One day we shall be reunited and at that time, it will be for an eternity, which we loved to talk about to help comfort each other as our journey on earth was nearing the end.
Love you forever and a day.

Matthew J Sherman

Today at 5:30 PM will be 4 full weeks since you left the physical world and started your spiritual journey. Me our children and Grandchildren miss you so much and we are supporting each other through the maze of pain. We are busy planning your Heavenly Birthday celebration. Our church has accepted our request to have your name mentioned at the 10AM mass and we have about 20 people scheduled to be at your mass. We will then go to the cemetery and then lunch as we will comfort each other and celebrate our beautiful memories of you and your amazing spirit and strength. As time passes, those of us that love you, have felt your empty space and we have to accept that nothing will ever completely heal the hole in our hearts left by your departure. Our Faith remains strong that our Lords promise will be kept.
We love you so much.
