In My Father's house are
many mansions; if it were not so, I would have
told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And
if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come
again and receive you to Myself; that where I
am, there you may be also. ( John 14:2-3 )
John Bravo family. Our deepest sympathy for the loss of your wonderful mother. It is sad we won't seeing John and Sylvia in town, but we all know she is in a better place. God bless you all.
John and Family, May the many memories of your mother( and father) bring you comfort during this difficult time .God bless you!
To Michael, John, and family,
My prayers are with you at this most difficult time.
Well, I cannot put it more eloquently that Vicki. Tough times as our parents pass. Mrs Bravo was always so gracious when I visited. Her love was evident in you Michael and she and your Father could not have loved you more. You will always have that. My condolences to you and your sister and brother. May you find peace and comfort in your memories....another star in the heavens! Much Love, Lisa
To the Bravo Family,
My condolences to your loss. I thought Mrs. Bravo was a real nice and cheerful lady. I remember having a nice visit with Mrs. Bravo at Logsdon's restaurant in Santa Paula. I commend her son John whom I would see taking his mom out in town and helping with her daily needs. I can understand the challenges of being a caregiver because I am a caregiver for my mother and uncle who are now quite elderly. We just have to be thankful for their longevity. Yes, I am one of the babyboomers who are grateful to our elderly parents. I will keep you all in my prayers.
Sylvia was a special friend. We shared many good times together. With our many trips to Ventura College for gym class and our Birthday Breakfasts at Carrows with Marie. We were the "3" Muskateers. You will we missed. From your good Protestant friend (as she called me) Love You..Bev
I remember Mrs. Bravo from my elementary school days. She seemed very tall to me, of course (because I was little) but, even then, she struck me as an elegant lady with great carriage and dignity. My classmate was her son, Michael, and his mom would record, via a conventional camera (snapshots) or perhaps an old-time movie camera, any school production or event in which Michael was a participant. She must have been very proud of him and all of her children.
It is a difficult time for us baby boomers, as our parents reach the same advanced age, passing on one by one. So many of their friends have also left, but it is indeed indicative of living out a long life. And a long life is a gift...a gift that a great number of people don't get. So, somehow in our grief, we have to celebrate the life of our parents...that long life that saw so much over so many decades...the Greatest Generation, who survived The Great Depression, too many wars, the wild 60s and 70s...
And to be able to have careers, raise children, be active and respected in their community as were both Mr. and Mrs. Bravo...this is life well-spent; a gift.
Deepest sympathies to all of her family. From the standpoint of the adult child, it is just so hard to see our parents suffer the frailty of age, and to lose them from our lives. It can seem like the break-up of a family but, over time, shared memories will fill your heart.
