Letter to Shelley

Shelley & Stony Gendusa

Friday, April 9,2010

Dear Shelley, Stony's mom and my dearest friend Patty called early this morning to give us the sad news. My heart hurts for you and the family. I have looked at Stony’s FaceBook page several times today, wanting to know him better, read his own words and the words of his friends. I have read the posts, looked at the pictures many times and cried a little. On his FB page, one can see how much you loved each other and what a zest and joy that Stony had for living. You celebrated life together.

In my mind’s eye, I see the picture of you two (“Climbing in the RZR”), Stony at the wheel, speeding across the farm, you hanging on for dear life and both of you laughing.

On​e of today’s posts on Stony’s FB page seemed to sum up all the many tributes made. This writer said: “This beautiful man, a gentle giant, a hero, touched the hearts of everyone who was blessed to know him. We will miss his sweet smile and easy chuckle. We will think of him often. We will love him forever.” To this, I say AMEN.

Dear Shelley, Stony’s precious and loving wife, “Did you ever know that you're my hero, and ev'rything I would like to be?”

May the God of All Comfort and Love be with you tonight and always.

Love & Prayers,

I just saw this sweet letter. Thank you so much for your loving words. My heart is as broken today as it was on the day Stony passed. He is forever loved and missed by me.

I hope you are well and enjoying being back home.

Miss you.
