Dear New Canaan,
It’s impossible to find the words to thank you for all the love and support you have given me and my family during my husband Steve’s illness and passing. Ever since I first arrived New Canaan, I knew it was a special place and this caring community has continued to amaze me. The angels of New Canaan came together and honored Steve with a beautiful memorial service, a heartfelt procession through town and a lovely reception at Waveny. Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen. It “took a village” to say goodbye to “Mr. New Canaan”:
Thank you to the First Presbyterian Church for being there for my family and bringing together the community in the beautiful sanctuary. Thank you to New Canaan Fire Company and the Old Faithful Antique Fire Engine company for accompanying my husband with dignity on his final trip through town. Thank you to the NC Police Department, the Ambulance Corps, the Parks Department and Town Hall. Special thanks to Carriage House Catering. We’re so grateful we could put ourselves in your hands to handle the reception, along with Francos Liquors, Gregg’s Garden Center, Karl Chevrolet and Walter Stewart’s Market.
