A message from Bob…

“Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.”

As Matthew’s 1st Birthday approaches, it causes the memories from the hospital last September to arise. While the hurt still remains, it has brought a great deal of comfort to see the infinite amount of love and comfort given by all of you. A woman I work with went through a similar situation, the other day she asked how I was. Then she went on to explain that when she had her loss, her husband’s feeling were set aside, this led to a sad divorce and a great deal of heartache. I didn’t even need to think about it, I told her that actions speak louder than words and what you all have done for Kay and I help the hurt.

In the weeks and years to come, Kay’s pain will continue. Please continue to watch over her, talk about Matthew, love Delaney, and spread the “Family Feeling’s” the DiSanto’s are known for! I have loved Kay since the first night I met her, I told Bill that she was the one I would marry. As you all have seen, I couldn’t love my two kids and Buffett anymore than I do. Without you all, who knows how the last year, would have gone.

Always remember that we love you all! Never hesitate to ask for a favor or a talk, visit us, and always realize that you have a place to come and share our Sunshine, Delaney.

    Bob thank you so much for being there for Kay and Delaney. They are two very lucky women. I know this day will be hard for all, but mostly for two very loving parents being you and Kay. Know that I am always there for anything you may need. And a day hasn’t gone by that I don’t say a prayer for you and your family. No words can take away your pain but a lot of love and family can help ease it and you both have that. I look forward to spending next week with you all. Hope you are there to join me, Kay and Delaney as we go to Chuckie Chesses to have some fun with your little sunshine. I love you all very much.

    Bob, first thank you for letting me be with you and Kay C this past weekend. Although we didn’t do alot (which is what I wanted) I got to spend some quiet time, play time, sister time, family time, sad time, cemetary time, etc etc and quite frankly I needed that and I think KC did too. The pain and hurt sometimes doesn’t need to be told – it simply needs to be felt and shared by being together. You may friend I think understand that and I am glad you have allowed KC to have those moments. No the pain doesn’t go away and it always leaves a hole but when you have your other half there to help you through it it makes it a bit more bearable. I hope my place is the place for hospitality next time. I love you all very much.

    Your words and thoughts are beautiful and we thank you for being such a strong rock for Kay. As I told you at the beginning, it is harder for the mother who carried this little person, but you were there to take her pain and love her. He will always be a part of both of you, in your mind, thoughts, and dreams. Words are so inadequate to express our love and concern for both of you at this time, but know we are there for you always and love you more than we can say. I hope everyone will say a prayer for Matthew tomorrow that God is loving him the way that we do. There is a mass at St. John’s at 4:15 pm for anyone that can make it. Love Nana and Poppy

    I cannot express how much we love you and hurt for your loss! This week is cerainly hard for everyone, but especially for you and Kay. We cannot take the pain away, but we can be here to listen and to try to help in any way possible. Bob, thank you for standing by Kay and making sure that her needs and feelings are important. It takes a strong man to stand by a women going through this sort of pain and we are glad that you are taking care of her for us. I certainly wish I was closer so that I could do more, but please know that your family is constantly in my thoughts and prayers and I think about Matthew all the time. Your kind words brought me to tears… please know that we will always be here, we will always shower your family with our love, and we will do anything we can to help. We love your family, and especially our little Matthew! We will not let him be forgotten.

    I know these times are difficult and although nothing said will diminish the pain or change the situation- the love and comfort of family does ease the pain. Thank you Bob for the kind words. I am so sorry for the lose your family has suffered but do find comfort in your sunshine, Delaney. May she love away some of the hurt for you. Never hesitate to call us or ask for anything as we are always here for you and your family. You are in our prayers and thoughts daily but especially in the days ahead.
