  1. Michelle Burgett – Thinking of you at your time of loss

    There’s no vocabulary
    For love within a family, love that’s lived in
    But not looked at, love within the light of which
    All else is seen, the love within which
    All other love finds speech.
    This love is silent.

    -T. S. Elliot

    To the Gorman Family. I never had the pleasure of meeting Robert Gorman, but Donna always spoke of him fondly and with the highest regard. My sincerest sympathies.
