  3. Tiny Angel – dedicated to Remy Elena Zappulla

    For brief and fleeting moment, an angel touched the ground;
    With tiny wings and halo, and sweet, soft angel sounds.

    Blessing the lives of others, in beauty and in grace;
    Those who saw the angel, knew God had kissed her tiny face.

    The angel came for reasons we may not understand;
    A journey brief, with gifts so great, and guided by God’s hand.

    So, rest now tiny angel, your work on earth is through;
    In the beauty of God’s perfect love we saw His gift in you.

    Fly Remy Fly!

  4. Dear Pete and Mary,

    What a beautiful service today. Courageous little Remy was one of my last patients of medical school, but perhaps, the most important patient I encountered in my four years of schooling. I was honored to be witness to her brave fight for life and to your strength and grace as parents. As I move forward with my training, I promise to keep Remy’s memory and spirit alive in the approach I take with every patient and family member I encounter. My prayers continue to be with you and your little angel.

    With deepest sympathy,
    Alexandra Sowa, M.D.

  5. Pete and Mary – I know today is unbelievably sad and there is nothing worse then having to bury your child – but it was a beautiful service and I am honored that you continue to share your beautiful Remy with all of us even in your grief. As you said in your eulogy – you could have kept it private and to yourselves – but you chose not to and for that I am grateful. Your little girl touched so many of us – her courage and strength is something I will look to when I need those things and I will hold the memory of her in my heart.

    I love you both – please know I am here for you, whatever you may need.

  6. I just read through all your posts. I sat in my living room crying and trying NOT to put myself in your place, but I couldn’t. I kept thinking about my baby and I just can’t imagine your pain. I pray that all the good memories you had with Remy will comfort you both. You will be in my prayers:)

    Although I do not know you and you do not know me, my heart goes out to you in the loss of your little angel. God Bless all of you. It is never easy to lose a child. I lost my 20 year old son in an auto accident in 1998. Our children are a gift from God. We know not how long we will be blessed to have them. Remy and AJ are safe in the arms of our Lord. Have a Wonderful Day! God Bless You and Your Families. Lotsa Love, Mary Ann Chambers

  8. Mary,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your strength and courage were an inspiration to me during our shared time in the NICU. I had no doubt that I would find you when I came to visit when my son was back in for tests the end of May. Even then, I needed to ask to see Remy’s mom as I did not know your name until reading your blog. Your most important roles as cheerleader, protector, and comforter for your beautiful daughter, day in and day out, made it clear that “Remy’s mom” was identifier enough.
    Then as now, I will continue to keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
    xxoo Jessica (mom of Palmer, CHD)

  9. This calls for a complex trial and error process in discovering the eye
    cream that greatest suits you. Skin cell re-growth is normally slower as
    time goes by or as a person ages. This is one that has
    a very high customer satisfaction rate, and nearly all users are pleased with the results.
