    To The Alexander Family,
    I love you all so much and I feel the grief of your broken hearts and wanted to share this poem by Fra Giovanni in loving salute to MARIE. Marie was an architect of blessings, Marie painted my world a much better place, Marie was a sculptor of of perseverance. Please find JOY!
    Fra Giovanni da Verona (c. 1457, Verona – 1525) was an Italian Olivetan monk, sculptor, architect, miniature painter and woodworker.

    “I salute you. I am your friend, and my love for you goes deep. There is nothing I can give you which you have not. But there is much, very much, that, while I cannot give it, you can take. No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. Take heaven! No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present little instant. Take peace! The gloom of the world is but a shadow. Behind it, yet within our reach, is joy. “
