Sending prayers to all of Seymour (Sy's) family and friends. My family was blessed to have known him. May he rest in peace. I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. ~Leo Buscaglia Stella Uribe, January 1, 2015
