We Trusted the Gibbons With Our Emotions

 

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.

Our Family turned to the Gibbons Family for both our parents’ funerals





“My father passed away in 1998, and my mother 20 years later. I have 8 siblings. All of us were in full agreement that the Gibbons Family would take care of our mom”, is how Therese Fitzpatrick describes the feelings of her family when their mother passed away.

Further, Therese described in detail the professionalism and compassionate care and comfort provided by Tucker and Marya Gibbons. “Marya didn’t blink when one of my siblings proposed having all 21 grandchildren serve as pall bearers.  She simply treated it as an entirely normal request. We knew it wasn’t. But she simply went along with our request and worked it out”. She added, “Tucker and Marya knew when to advise us and when to step back and let us process through our grief. Everything they did was done beautifully and with such grace and dignity”. Not every arrangement involves 8 people offering input, but when that happens, the Gibbons understand and accommodate everyone.

There was no question where this family needed to go. Because the Gibbons Family is Family.
