Thank you for your Feb. 16 article regarding the Celebration of Hope fundraiser for our nephew and grandson, Rory Brennan Zuba. Ken Trainor did a beautiful job conveying that Rory's life was not defined by his brain cancer and describing our search for hope in Rory's treatment. We know that the article was responsible for a number of generous contributions as well as number of new friends attending the Celebration at Molly Malone's. We are very grateful for your help.
Rory ended his battle with cancer on the morning of Tuesday, February 22, 2005 with his Brennan and Zuba families by his side. He was a beautiful boy who showed incredible grace over the six difficult months since his diagnosis. His life reminds our family once again that each day together is a gift. We are enormously grateful for the precious gift of his life and for the overwhelming kindness and support that our larger family, friends, neighbors and people unknown to us have offered us so freely.
The Brennan Family
