Dear Chris, Marianne, Jan and all the extended family and friends of George. I send you love and warmth from California during we all grieve the loss of a truly remarkable man of faith and integrity, and an awesome resilience in the face of suffering that we all could only hope to have a glimpse of as we face our own challenges and death. As I reflect on the three decades of knowing Bucky, I am filled with memories of his welcoming spirit and friendly curiosity whenever I was in his presence....and an immediate assumption and inclusion as a cherished part of his family, something I felt quite strongly during my last visit back east when we had a sweet dinner together with Marianne. I offer this poem which seems to capture his exuberant faith and intelligence and essential qualities as a human being. May peace soon bloom in you all throughout this transition. Love to you all.... When Great Trees Fall By Maya Angelou: When great trees fall, rocks on distant hills shudder, lions hunker down in tall grasses, and even elephants lumber after safety. When great trees fall in forests, small things recoil into silence, their senses eroded beyond fear. When great souls die, the air around us becomes light, rare, sterile. We breathe, briefly. Our eyes, briefly, see with a hurtful clarity. Our memory, suddenly sharpened, examines, gnaws on kind words unsaid, promised walks never taken. Great souls die and our reality, bound to them, takes leave of us. Our souls, dependent upon their nurture, now shrink, wizened. Our minds, formed and informed by their radiance, fall away. We are not so much maddened as reduced to the unutterable ignorance of dark, cold caves. And when great souls die, after a period peace blooms, slowly and always irregularly. Spaces fill with a kind of soothing electric vibration. Our senses, restored, never to be the same, whisper to us. They existed. They existed. We can be. Be and be better. For they existed ?? With much love and warmth, Shelley

My deepest sympathy of the passing of your Father. I have wonderful memories of him from St. John the Baptist Church. I enjoyed speaking to him and could always count on him to support the music program at the church, and especially the Childrens' Choir. I remember playing for your Mother's funeral, Maryann...... I know you must have many happy memories of both your Mother and Father. Narda Sperrazza (organist, music teacher from St. John the Baptist Church, Pittston)
