Thomas Occhiogrosso - 1982 - 2009

"I don't believe what's happened." --Erin Occhiogrosso

Today we welcome into the club nobody wants to join, newly-widowed, Mrs. Erin Occhiogrosso, wife of Thomas Occhiogrosso.

Erin's husband was run down while crossing Hempstead Parkway in Long Island. He was 27 years old and had served 2 tours of duty in Iraq with the U. S. Navy.

Erin is left with their daughter, Cecelia, age 2.

To Erin, daughter, Cecelia, and every member of the Occiogrosso family, Griefcase extends sincere condolences and best wishes for mourning joy all thedays of your lives.

Mourning Quote:

"God Bless Them All." --Taken from a large steel beam recovered at Ground Zero.

Mourning Joy:

Q: How do you make an instant elephant?

A: Open the package, add water, and run!

After we remember Him, do what I do. Set a clock timer for ten, open what I lovingly refer to as a joy-nal, and write something.

Go ahead.

I dare you.

Have a joy-filled day, Everyone.

And just remember, we're not alone.
