My thoughts and prayers are with my cousin Gigi and my family--I love you all very much.
My Aunt Margaret and uncle Tony supported me at every life stage and were one of the strongest influences on my education. In college, Tony started to write me emails where he’d give me life advice. As I got older I understood the advice more and why people turned to him for counsel. Uncle Tony added value where ever he went. He taught me to think, to be present and to give honest feedback. Our last conversation over dinner was about books and travel. After the conversation, I told him I loved him and that I’m grateful for having him as my uncle. I’m grateful for his advice, energy and push to explore learning. Tony was the best and I’ll miss him.

My condolences to the Pena family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.
