Maia and Donna

MaiaWell, Phyllis, I don’t know how you managed to get Maia’s letter from heaven to us here in New York without being stamped by the United States postal service, but I guess anything is possible.

We received the letter yesterday and my husband, Sophie and I sat on the patio and read it, not a dry eye in the house. It is warm, funny, totally Maia to a “T”! This has been an exhausting ordeal and I know I’m still running on pure adrenaline but all of these things help in the healing process. This morning, her announcements and Mass cards came in the mail and that’s another job for me to do as well!

She came back home to us on Tuesday and for the first time in years, she was able to sleep with me in my bedroom again. (We have a 200 year old house with close to 30 steep steps leading to the second level and she hasn’t been able to do them in years!) So I now have her back close to me every night! I did want you to know how much I appreciate the hard work and the time you spent on her letter to make it just perfect. We’re having it professionally matted and framed and it will be placed with jazzes’ memorial on the mantel of my husband’s fireplace in his office here at home. She’s still all over the house! :o ) and I wish I knew your secret of how it got to us without going through the mail, no stamp, no city, no date, etc. Amazing! It certainly added to the intrigue of her letter. Thanks again so much. It was a pleasure meeting you and you have been a part of our healing process.

God bless you for what you are doing. I know some people think we’re crazy, but I know Maia is just resting and waiting till we see her again on the other side…..

Shalom,
Donna
