Letter: In Appreciation

“We” the family of “Kara Marie Grazioso” wish to take this opportunity to sincerely acknowledge and thank all our participating city officials and services that responded and assisted us with our family emergency on the morning of Sept. 25, 2009, ie: EMS of G.C., G.C. P.D. and detectives – Nassau County Coroners Department – everything was handled very professionally by all parties involved, also religious clergy. The names are too numerous to mention; I don’t want to be remiss. You all know who you are!

The Minutolli family and staff at Dodge-Thomas - they always go the extra mile to make for a smooth transition in carrying out their services under the profound and personal leadership and expertise of Guy Minutolli – always a true and compassionate friend. She’s now with her Grandpa Graz and beloved Uncle Keith.

Thanks to all friends and neighbors who provided much needed comfort and/or donated the tons of food ‘n’ refreshments throughout and the friends who co-ordinated set up and service. The friends and relatives who traveled from near and far to pay their respects to “Kara’s Memory.” I never realized my granddaughter had so many, many friends. She touched so many people’s lives in many different ways. In return they’ve been very instrumental in memorializing her on Facebook with daily updates and events they’ve planned for fundraising, etc. It’s awesome the things these young people come up with. It’s wonderful – you know - thanks is just a word! There are times it seems not tobe enough!

My thoughts – my words! We live each day in her memory.

Rae Grazioso
