My love, my darling,
A part of me died when you left us.
Your beautiful smile, your quick sense of humour, your sharp wit, your kindness, your selflessness and your intelligence. All of these facets of you compose the most wonderful man I will ever know, my Husband.
You are my love, the life that I breathe. You are my strength, my love from the start, you are my tears and my joy.
You are my world - my everything.
Your smile alone warmed hearts. I would give absolutely anything to have you well standing by my side.
Many tears I have cried until I thought my tears ran out, and then I cried some more.
I know I cannot be with you now and you cannot be with me, but safe in my heart you will always be.
No matter what the future brings,
I know you will walk with me.
So rest my darling Aurelio,
and let your soul fly free.
One day I’ll join your glorious flight,
for all eternity.
Life will never be the same without you, my love.
Your ever-loving “Bella Mia”,
Words do not express the deep sorrow and heartache we are feeling. You were more than our Father – you were our leader, our inspiration and our hero. You had such an amazing view of the world. Your ability and intelligence to help others and find a solution for any situation when needed was unique.
You shared this special gift with everyone you encountered.
With your kind and gentle nature, you never ceased to give us strength and support. You gave everything to your family and friends and truly asked for nothing. Nothing made you happier than when we were all together, whether it be reminiscing about the good times or creating new memories. We will cherish these moments forever.
As a role model, throughout your life you taught us so much – patience, love and kindness, strength and determination in times of adversity, honesty, and above all, respect and an absolute priority for family. Although our hearts are broken, we take solace in knowing that
you will continue to walk alongside us through this life, as you always have.
Dad, we are so honored and proud of everything you have achieved. Know that your legacy will continue to live on through us and your beloved grandchildren. You will be forever missed, never forgotten, and always, always loved.
Your loving children -
Joseph, Angela, Louise, Laurie and Emanuele.
Our Dearest Nonno,
Although our time has been short, your gentle smile and love have been imprinted on our hearts forever.
Your cuddles, jokes and excitement lit up our lives, and the laughter you shared with us was contagious.
We miss you so much already Nonno, not only our adored grandfather, but now
our guardian angel who will be forever watching over us.
All our love,
Your Grandchildren Sophia, Isabella, Claudia and Gabriella.
You left us far far too soon, on that sad Saturday afternoon.
We sat and prayed until you could breathe no more,
and we cried and cried until we could cry no more.
In God's Kingdom lots of loved ones await, with open arms to welcome you at the pearly gate.
There, your inventive mind will surely enter the race,
on how to make
heaven an even better place.
Elvira and I will remember you forever. Rest In Peace.
Your loving brother, Gilbert.
With great sadness we say farewell to Aurelio. He lived his life well and fought a brave fight
to stay with family for as long as he could.
Our deepest sympathy to Norina, Joseph, Laurie, Angela, Emanuele, Louise and all the grandchildren. He was the adored youngest brother (tratellino) of Mimma and brother-in-law of Tony Mafrici. Much loved Uncle and brother-in-law of John and Anna Mafrici. Much loved uncle of Nancy and Fiore Nardone, Angie and Joe laria and all their families. He will be deeply missed and forever in our hearts.
Fondest memories of our beloved Brother-In-Law and Zio.
Aurelio will always be remembered as a man that was devoted and loyal to his wife and family, sincere and friendly to all. His legacy will live on which is evident in his beautiful children and grandchildren.
A sad farewell to our Brother-In-Law,
Ida and Joe Rea, Armando Perri (dec.), Adelina and Enzo Maddalon, Verona and Joe Pulitano, Anna and
John Mafrici and families.
