Re: “Obituary: Brian Costello, 1983-2018

A kind and beautiful soul - I was made better by knowing Brian and am saddened by this news. My prayers go out to his family and all who were touched by him.

Re: “Obituary: Brian Costello, 1983-2018

I also went to school with Brian. We weren't close, but I do remember his smile.
Depression and mental illness is a painful thing to endure, I have fought my own battle with it all my life.
Today I will smile for Brian. I will take his memory and spread joy to others today.
May we all do this for each other each and every day.
Wishing all his family and friends love and light and strength.

We were not close in school, but I cannot recall a time he was unkind to anyone. I hope he is at peace now, and his family can find closure.

Re: “Obituary: Brian Costello, 1983-2018

I am sending your family huge love and strength. I lost my beautiful brother and only sibling to depression two years ago. You write this courageously and beautifully and I will keep Brian in my heart and all of you in my prayers. He clearly is an extraordinary soul. Love and light and strength. May you focus on the love and beauty, not the impossible sense of loss.

Re: “Obituary: Barbara Lee Silver, 1936-2018

One of my favorite Barbara memories, I was newly married and wanted to make my husband a pot roast. Naturally, I called Barbara for the recipe, I not only wrote the recipe down but I made her stay on the phone with me step by step while I prepared and cook the pot roast. Needless to say, it came out delicious... I will miss our talks and hearing her voice when I call Lee.
My deepest condolences to the Silver Family xoxoxo Shari

Re: “Obituary: Stella Sławin Penzer, 1921-2018

Thank you for this incredible story of Stella's life. I would love to celebrate her life and her family. I have long lost family that suffered through these times-- family I only discovered and met for the first time in Israel ten years ago. My one contact with my family there (my biological father) is now gone, and I would love to offer my blessings to your family. Please keep me posted if you wish-- I have contacted Seven Days with my info. Thank you, Annie (Anushka, as my Father called me).

For some people, great suffering engenders great love. Stella was one such soul. To have been loved by her is a blessing.

Re: “Obituary: Stella Sławin Penzer, 1921-2018

Encourage your children to study history. If they do, they will see that almost all the wars ever fought have created suffering for both losers and winners and that many of of those wars have been prolific in spawning additional wars. People can learn enough to know when their lives are at stake. That is so often what they are told and so rarely the truth.

Re: “Obituary: Eric Woodman Rozendaal, 1967-2018

A neighbor and friend in the Intervale. A neighbor and friend on our farms in Starksboro and Hinesburg. A neighbor and friend at the farmers market. A terrible loss for all of us in the food/agricultural community and the broader communities that he touched and made more wonderful all around the world.

Re: “Obituary: Eric Woodman Rozendaal, 1967-2018

So heartbroken hearing this news. Words can't convey well enough our love and condolences to Eric's family. I had the good fortune of sitting next to Eric last year at Tuttle Middle School to talk to the students about the cross-cultural experiences of the Peace Corps. Eric is one of the few PC volunteers that I have known who returned to his home landscape and applied what he learned, brought back a lot of wisdom and ability, and maintained close contact, still spoke the language he learned, was passionate about the experience as it shaped his path and he knew it and he was there, taking time off from his farm, to encourage the middle school students to embrace the world, to be intellectually curious, to go out and learn about other people in the world because you will find common humanity, and to expect surprises. He was a good guy with a big heart and our community is better because of his life here. Love and peace and healing to you all, dear friends.

I am so very sorry for your loss. My brother is the one who discovered her in the water and contacted the police. May she find the peace that she was seeking and may you find peace knowing she may finally rest. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Kathy Richardson - Maine
