Losing a child suddenly is likely the most painful and confusing, out of the order of life event that can occur to a family. Those two emotions are but a few of so many emotions that swirl around within such a tragic circumstance. In a very short time, Theresa Shea had so many decisions to make while in a state of grief beyond the imagination.
Elmhurst is the place where her family settled, but her hometown still held a deep place in her heart. On immediate reflection, she realized Elmhurst was the hometown her beautiful son Aidan knew. Elmhurst was absolutely his hometown and the community that poured out so much support for the Shea Family. Knowing the Gibbons Family within the community made the choice simple. It was in making the arrangements that Theresa fully realized she was where she needed to be. Her requests for some nontraditional choices was met with complete acceptance and carried out. As Theresa points out, “Marya Gibbons made us understand that what we wanted for our boy was without question the absolutely right thing to do”. And then she said, “we don’t need to talk about it anymore. This is what you want; this is what we’re doing”. Theresa described that as a real gift. Marya described that as a family taking care of a family the way we’re supposed to.
