Dear Jean and brothers and dad, So sorry to hear you lost someone so special to you all. Wanted to pass this poem along. What Is Dying? Bishop Brent A ship sails and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon, and someone at my side says, She is gone. Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large as when I saw her... The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says, She is gone, there are others who are watching her coming, and other voices take up a glad shout, Here she comes! ... and that is dying. With Love, Kimberli

Dear Jean and Mr. DiGiovanna, My sincere condolences to you Jean, & to your Dad and entire family. Working next to you in projects you believed in you proved yourself to be a committed, creative and intuitive leader.
