My Amazing Father,
You had a genuine soul and a big heart.
Family came above all else and you always found ways to make me smile.
The love you gave was unconditional.
You never asked for anything, and you gave your everything.
You were my protector, my guiding hand, a best friend, in your strength I found courage, in your love I found hope.
In your resilience I found determination.
I will forever be grateful for the lessons you taught and the life we shared.
My heart is broken but I know you are not alone.
Together reunited with your loving wife Maria and daughter Mirella.

God has you in his arms and I will forever have you in my heart.
Love Elvira

Rest in Peace

To our beautiful Nonno.
You were more than a Nonno, you were our father figure and our role model.
You showed us to balance hard work and still live our fullest life.
You taught us to never give up, and to laugh at our mistakes.
We will cherish our memories we have with you and we are grateful there are so many.
Outside in the sunshine, laughing, singing, and dancing.
You shared so many of your values and lessons, to help make us who we are today.
You loved the simple things.
Your energy for life was contagious we thought we would be together forever.
Thank you for always putting us first we are so blessed to have had you in our lives and we will love and miss you forever.
You can now be with the love of your life.
Give Nonna a big hug and kiss for us.

Love your Grandchildren
Elisia, Stefania, Alessandro,
Isabella & Gabirel and Olivia

Rest in Peace

Forever in our Hearts
