And, just a few moments ago, I received an email from my friend in San Diego, telling me that our friend Vincenzo, owner of a wonderful Italian resto "VINCENZO'S," in Little Italy just passed away last night. Gosh... I know how sad it is when someone you love passes away, but Heaven must really be rocking out right now! My heart weeps and goes out to my friends and their families at this time... It's really a hard time to get through... I don't know if people really like to talk about it openly, I know it really helped me to talk about my mom's death... but, it seems to take soooo long to get through losing a loved one or someone close... even for me, and I have a really strong faith in God. It helps me get through it, but it doesn't take away the grief or the pain.
