Less than 2 months ago, “06880″ ran a story on a cute, lovely 5-year-old girl nicknamed Buggie. Three days after Christmas, she was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive brain tumor.
Today, I received this heartbreaking email:
It is with much sadness that we share the heartbreaking news that our beautiful and brave niece and granddaughter, Fiona Penelope “Buggie” Lundell — Thomas Lundell’s precious daughter — earned her angel fairy wings on Tuesday morning, June 25, 2013.
She passed away peacefully, with her mommy and daddy by her side.
Buggie’s sparkling and sweet spirit will live on forever in our hearts and souls.
A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, July 2 at the Hoyt & Cognetta Funeral Home, 5 East Wall Street, Norwalk, CT from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.
A reception will follow at the Saugatuck Harbor Yacht Club, 6 Great Marsh Road, Westport.
We hope everyone can join in celebrating Fiona’s life. Children are welcome.
Casual and colorful attire is preferred in honor of the vibrant and colorful world that Fiona appreciated so much.
In lieu of flowers, Buggie’s family has asked for memorial donations to be made to: Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. To send a gift by mail, please make checks payable to “PBTF”; 302 Ridgefield Court, Asheville, NC 28806. Honoree name: Fiona Lundell (Love for Buggie). Notification recipient: Thomas Lundell
With all our love and gratitude,
