It's a Brand New Day

Today has been 4 weeks since Fede's passing. We are missing him more and more each day. We have reminders of him everywhere from his garden,plants, and flowers that he loved to his many instruments laying around the house. Lucia said to me today "thank you mom for holding our family together" and "mom, we will get through this." And we will.I see so much of Fede in our children. I will honor him in raising them how we always wanted to together. There have been some days when I haven't wanted to get up in the morning to get the day started but I just had to remember Fede and all that he did and I have gotten up everyday thanking God for a new day and for having the chance to raise our children doing the job for both of us. Fede's memorial service was one week ago and it was a beautiful celebration of Fede's life. Many people were there to honor him. It was joyful, emotional and authenic to who Fede was. He inspires me everyday and I have heard from many people since his passing that they are also inspired to live better, more thankful of life. We have been overwhelmed by love and support during this time. Here is a video celebrating Fede that was played at his service.
Much love, Marci

You re an inspiration and i think about you so much throughout by day as i am taking care of my kids...thinking about how you would do things and what you're experiencing now.

I enjoy it on a non-clinging basis. What I really enjoy is not you; it’s something that’s greater than both you and me. It is something that I discovered, a kind of symphony, a kind of orchestra that plays one melody in your presence, but when you depart, the orchestra doesn’t stop. When I meet someone else, it plays another melody, which is also very delightful. And when I’m alone, it continues to play. There’s a great repertoire and it never ceases to play.”
—Awareness .Anthony De Mello.
Marci Beautiful video! Fede is always in my mind..Keep the Force..

Marci,
I am so sorry to hear of Fede's loss, but am grateful for the time I got to know him and you both. You both speak so eloquently to the beauty of life, and of the many mircales that Fede brought to you and everyone he knew. He truly lived a wonderful life, and you have all he gave to you that will keep giving back forever.

May all the miracles keep coming.

Marci,
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Fede. I am so glad to have been given the honor to get to know both him and you. You both speak so eloquently of the beauty of life, and Fede's own many miracles that he got to share with you and your children. Those gifts he gave you will always be there, and always keep giving back to you.

I wish you and your family the best, and thank you again for the kindesses you both gave me. May the miracles always keep coming.

I will be forever inspired by Fede, our son in law. I never saw him complain in the 4 and a half years that he so courageously fought the battle of his life. My life will be forever changed after knowing Federico, and all that he showed me in how to live each day to the fullest and to enjoy all of God's creation. His legacy that he has left with all of us, is one to be studied and appreciated. If only I can "Live Like Fede" in only some areas of my life, I will be better for it....Thank you Fede and Marci and Lucis and Mateo, for sharing your lives with us, and showing us how to appreciate each other and God in such a fantastic way....Gracias
