Your  feature, “The power of being there” was right on. Last May, after suffering through the ravages of Pulmonary Fibrosis for 2 years, an illness with no known cause, treatment or cure, my wife of almost 50 years, Lois, succumbed at Weill-Cornell, where she was treated with love and care from a professional and devoted staff. We were all there with her and will always remember that last, final moment.

.We could not have carried on , through birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, with out the love, prayers and concern of our friends and family.

I can easily say that I know how you feel, but no two people grieve alike.However, we both have those memories of our soul mates, the loves of our lives, to strengthen us in these trying times.

Enjoy those memories and your family.

Vincent Arcuri, Jr.

Chairperson, Community Board 5, Queens
