  1. Beautifully written, exquisitely expressed. I won’t pretend to know what you’ve been through, but I can’t deny my tears upon reading this account that brought me closer to your story. Thanks for the quietly strong words, and for sharing your bravery upon walking through those doors again.

  2. Thank you, Maria, for sharing the raw emotions you experienced when you visited the McDonalds on Waukegan for the first time since your son was killed in 2003. Your beautiful reflection reminds everyone who has ever experienced an excruciating loss that the pain never really goes away but if you keep your heart open you can add a fresh perspective that helps the healing process. God bless you and your family.
