Ida Virginia Grillo
December 29, 1936 - March 27, 2010


“Lost love is still love.  It takes a different form, that’s all.  You can’t see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor.  But when those senses weaken, another heightens.  Memory.  Memory becomes your partner.  You nurture it.  You hold it.  You dance with it.  Life has to end.  Love doesn’t.”
- Mitch Albom, "The Five People You Meet In Heaven"
