Mallory Rose Grossman has left this world a better place. Those who were fortunate to have known her and loved her are better people for it. Her beautiful and free spirit will remain with us for the rest of eternity.
Every once in a great while, heaven sends down a teacher in the form of a child. Mallory was our teacher. She taught us how to love each other as only a child can. Although she has returned to join all of the Angels in Heaven , she’s left us lessons for others to learn about. How we should love each other. The value of our lives, our families and our communities. Her purpose and impact on this world is beyond what we can see or feel. And everyone who takes her lessons are better for having done so. She inspired. She was kind. She was innocent. She was beautiful. And she was pure.
Mal loved the outdoors and nature. She loved flowers, every color and shape. She was compassionate. She raised money often and would send every penny to her favorite charity, Camp Good Days. This camp provides summer camp experiences for children with cancer and children who have lost someone dear to them with cancer. Selfless. It was her giving spirit and love for all people and things that drove her to move mountains. Another lesson.
Mallory was artsy and talented. She made jewelry (of course she sold it all to benefit Camp Good Days) and was always crafting something. She was creative and very much an entrepreneur. She was gifted and wise beyond her years. Truly, an Old Soul.
Her Family are her biggest fans! She has an adoring Mom and Dad, Dianne and Seth. She has amazing siblings Carlee, Kristen and Ryan. She looked up to them and loved them. She loved everyone. Mallory has two pups at home, Lola and Rocky. They loved to smooch her up and get snuggled and played with. Her grandparents Edward and Teresa Toelle and Gary and Marilyn Grossman have sparkled since this precious girl came into their lives. Ge’ma and Papa shined even brighter. She is a rock star to her aunts and uncles Brandi, Kevin (Lindsey) and Angela (Jamie). And her cousins, Deagan, Madelyn, Gracelyn, Annaleigh, Matthew, Alex, Ethan and Brayden who was her other half when together and apart. Best buddies forever. Mal loved her girlfriends Bianca, Caroline, Liv, Anna and Ava. They laughed and played and learned from each other. Beautiful, kind girls.
We will be gathering in the gardens in the rear of the building this Tuesday. Please be sure to dress appropriately for the weather. The building will be open as well for those who would like to spend a quiet moment of meditation and watch Mallory Rose's life in pictures.
Friends and relatives are welcome to come and celebrate Mal's life from 3 o'clock to 7o'clock in the evening. A service of blessings, hope and love will begin at 6 o'clock.
We ask that you continue your prayers for Mal and her entire family. Keep them in your hearts and minds today and always.
"When we love, we always strive to become better than we are.
When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too."
I'll Paint You A Rainbow
I'll paint you a rainbow to hang on the wall,
to brighten your heart when the gray shadows fall.
On a canvas of joy outlasting the years,
with a soft brush of sweetness to dry all your tears.
I'll paint you a rainbow with colors of smiles
That glow with sincerity over the miles.
On a palette of words I will tenderly blend
Tones into treasures of sunlight and wind.
I'll paint you a rainbow that reaches so wide,
Your sights and your sorrows will vanish inside,
And deep in the center of each different hue,
A memory fashioned especially for you.
So lift up your eyes, for suspended above,
A rainbow designed by the fingers of love...
