Comments: We hope Zoe’s dear little ones, Shira and Caleb, can join us, as requested.
We believe it is important to honor Zoe and console her children by acknowledging
Zoe’s passing in some ceremonious way.
Expressions of affection for Zoe and her children are appropriate, so please prepare a short
statement to share with the group, as those who wish to do so may speak by turns.
If you have photos of Zoe or the children, please bring copies to give to the children
and sign the guest book, giving contact information.
To avoid having the event overwhelm the children, we ask that
everyone speak softly, refrain from outbursts of strong emotion, and allow the children
to come to them, rather than go to them suddenly with hugs, etc. Too much of a good thing
might not be a good thing, and we are certain that you who cared for Zoe understand
completely. Thank you for being a good friend to Zoe, who died the day before Mother’s Day
and exemplified the best of motherhood: unconditional love.
