Team Marisa & Wellesley

208386_208017829217300_100000272539809_794154_4107544_nWhile Brian played Mr. Mom for a few days, I was able to attend Marisa’s memorial service in Arizona.  It was an emotional weekend, but I’m so glad I was able to go.  Marisa is truly one-of-a-kind, and made (and will continue to make) an impact on so many lives.  marisa,scott3[10]Her hilarious sense of humor and unending compassion for others will live on.  As many people said, knowing Marisa made you want to be a better person.  (You can read more about Marisa here and here.)

My brother, Scott, created this beautiful tribute video for Marisa, that truly captures the inspiration she is to her family, her friends, and the rest of the world.  It was played during her memorial service – not a dry eye in the house when it finished!

I'm so sorry for your loss. The video was absolutely beautiful and although I didn't know Marisa personally it touched me greatly. I don't have a lot to give but I'll make a donation in her memory.
