Today we celebrate
Gregory's birthday - January 14, 2003.
Please donate in his memory. Every gift
will be put to use immediately to support our mission to provide Kisses of
Opportunity in the form of domestic violence educational resources as well as
educational scholarships to low-income students throughout the U.S.
Our goal is to celebrate
the memory of Amy Perez and her children, Molly and Gregory and
reflect her generosity of spirit, her commitment to academic excellence,
and her enduring legacy as a mother and tutor. In particular, we attempt
to reflect Amy’s unique way of praising her students’ success by tossing them a
chocolate candy from the bowl that sat on the desk where she tutored.
Kind and sweet and just
8 years old
Our little boy Gregory
had a heart of gold.
Described as a
"perfect" person by his best friend
That was surely true
until his very tragic end.
Gregory was taken from
us at the hands of his dad
How that can happen
leaves us bewildered and so sad.
He had such a sharp
mind, knowing the stats and the facts
Of all the baseball
players who came up to bat.
Gregory was a star on
the field he could sure hit that ball
So far and so hard for
someone that small.
We miss our seeing our
dear Gregory and going to his games
His memory will live on
in our good deeds in his name.
