It ended the way we thought it might end. Better, even. But that doesn’t make it hurt any less. What does ease some of the pain, however, are your words and deeds. Thank you so much for wrapping our family in such love, for sending all your sympathy. Please, though, don’t express condolences today. Please do this instead: Share a memory of Celia, or relate a lesson you learned from her. Tell us about something nice, something simple but kind, that you’ve done for someone in her honor. Give us, if you will, something to hold on to when we wish we could hold her.
