Obituary of Perry Capasso
On Sunday, January 22, our dear friend, brother, son, and husband Perry Capasso fell asleep in this world for the very last time and awoke into the kingdom of everlasting peace. He was 59 years old.
What words can express the love we have for this life taken so soon? This life full of warm smiles and big hugs and an even bigger heart. We remember the helping hand he extended to anyone around him in need. We see him wrap his arm around his wife Michele and pose for a picture with that sly smile. We see him playing with his fluffy white poodle in his backyard and swinging the hammer in his basement. We see him on the beach and on the job and at a restaurant celebrating with his friends. We see him in our memories around the holiday table, laughing that contagious laugh and smiling that big smile. We see him in the morning through sleepy eyes and in the blinding sun of bright noon. We see him in our afternoons and at our dinners. We see him at night when the world grows as quiet as our hearts and the starry firmament softly covers this mourning earth like a blanket. In so many ways he is still with us, and we still see him. We see him everyday, in so many ways, we see our dear friend. A life so rich and a soul so full of love and strength stays with us long after God has called this wonderful man to his heavenly home. And while he has gone from us for a little while, he is always with us, every step and in every hour between the now and the someday soon.
What speech can we muster to say that which feels so inadequate for this moment, to say something to fill the gap between here and there, between this journey broken so often by sadness and the journey full of joy that he just began, between this mortal life and the eternal, between earth and heaven? Where he now stands with his brother and father and so many that have passed from us to that place of never ending light. Where all pain has ceased forever, never to return. Where all happiness beyond measure fills his soul in a way he never thought possible. Where perfect rest has taken over every inch of his heavenly body. How do we say goodbye to our dearest friend? We say it with reverence. We say it with sadness. We say it with love. And as we lay our weary heads on the pillow tonight, we whisper these four words, “Thy will be done.”
