Eleven-year-old Anabelle Ciampi will head into the woods on Aug. 17, when, for the third year in a row, she will take part in the Deep Pond Triathlon in the Long Island Pine Barrens in Wading River, swimming 200 meters, biking 3 miles, and running 1.3 miles. At the finish line, she will be greeted by a sea of light blue –– the color that will be worn by her family members and closest friends in honor of her late uncle Brian Ciampi, of Lynbrook, who died of colon cancer in February 2013, at age 39. Brian worked for the Department of Public Works in New Hyde Park and as a bartender at Pearsall’s Station in Lynbrook.
Our beloved dog Kirby died last week. She was a yellow lab mix adopted from the North Shore Animal League 16 years ago. A long life— but not nearly long enough for us. My three sons named her after the baseball player, Kirby Puckett. Never mind that she was a female. To say we’re devastated is an understatement. The house feels empty; someone is missing. Why is the loss of a pet so painful? I guess it’s because she was a member of the family who gave no-strings-attached, unconditional love and loyalty without expecting anything in return.
