We are all together in this chapel to honor Lea's life.
Here in this peace and tranquility we can best feel Lea's presence.
Lea, Daddy and I will always love you and we pray each and every day that you have all the love and support that you deserve.
Words are very hard to find to describe how much we miss you, all we know for sure is that you will always be in our hearts and time can never take away how empty we feel without you. Every day it hurts us so much that you were robbed of the life you loved so much and all your dreams and plans for the future.
You touched us like an angel who brought love and kindness into our life and you enlightened our world in a way that no one else can.
Words are not enough to describe what you represent to us. It's how we feel that best describes the longing we have for you to be near us every day.
How does a mother and father go on in this life without their child?
These are terribly trying times and the capacity of our humanity is being tested. It is as though we have arrived at the very edge of our being, and though it is possible we might survive, we will be thoroughly transformed. Perhaps we will be stronger, but there is no doubt we are thoroughly wounded. We are fatally wounded till the end of our life.

What it means to have something so tragic happen to you our precious daughter and our best friend is impossible to describe. Lea it really hurts us that you and Hani, Daddy and I lost all of our dreams for the future and the beautiful energy you gave us on a daily basis.
The only thing that we can be sure of is that we are getting help from God every day and we know that you are still taking care of us.
Daddy and I are trying to find a way to be with you even though you are physically not with us. Time can never change how we feel. In life there are some emotions that are too deep rooted in our hearts and time can never change them.
Who Lea is, in the essence, is alive in all of us who are here today and that can never be destroyed. Lea's love, comfort, care, kindness and her beautiful being will live on with us forever.
Lea, I will always remember the day you decided to take Nonno and Nonna to the mountain by yourself, even though it was such a monumental task, your love, your strength, and your courage to take them to enjoy there day even though it was so difficult to get them in and out of the car was so outstanding. They had such a wonderful time. You will remain in their minds and their hearts forever.

Lea you have taught us all the most important lessons in life, to care for each other, to look for the light in each person and to love each other unconditionally regardless of our weaknesses since life is so short here on earth and without this love we are nothing at all. Lea, thank you for being our mentor in showing us what really matters.
Lea, you are our world, our every breath, and our eternity. We will always love you and we are holding on to your love, your kindness and your beauty. You are the life inside us and we thank you for giving Daddy and I the strength to hold on.
We are holding on to you each and every step of our life until we join you again. Like Daddy always says so well. One day the three of us will be reunited again for eternity.
We would like to thank everyone for making this day so special for Lea.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh oh
Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That's where you'll find me
Oh, somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dreams that you dare to,
Oh why, oh why can't I?
Well I see trees of green and red roses too,
I'll watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Well I see skies of blue
And I see clouds of white
And the brightness of day
I like the dark
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
The colors
The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying, I... I love you
I hear babies cry and I watch them grow
They'll learn much more
Than we'll know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world (w)oohoorld
Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top that's where you'll find me
Oh, Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why can't I? I hiii?
