Dear Mr. & Mrs. Formaggioni:
We are heartbroken over the loss of your only son Jimmy. We share your unwanted burden with you, having lost our only son George. a fellow Longmeadow High School student, just one year ago this week.
We have found so much support from our friends, family, coworkers and the Longmeadow Community. We have found help and made friends attending the Compassionate Friends Meetings. Who best to understand what you are going through, then other parents and grandparents who have lost their loved ones. We attend meetings in Springfield, Massachusetts and Farmington, Connecticut. Here is a link to find the local chapters: http://www.compassionatefriends.org/Find_Support/Chapters/Chapter_Locator.aspx
Be there for each other. Take one minute at a time, then one hour, then by one day at a time. As we have learned, life will never be the same, but we do find a way to go on.
Sincerely - Ann Marie & James Ginopoulos
