I Will Miss You Nonno!

At approximately 5am this morning, my grandfather passed on from his worldly life. I feel he held on long enough to celebrate my birthday; I was his favorite, and we shared a special bond. My grandfather influenced me and taught me so much, even though he couldn't read or write in english or italian.

I learned to cook and take care of a family because of him. The love and patience that he put into every Sunday meal, I have carried on with family and friends.

My work ethic came from him also, "Whatever your job is in life, do it 100% and be proud of your work".

I will miss him dearly.

I love you grandpa,

Wow...I'm so very sorry for your loss. Even when someone's passing is kind of anticipated, its still never easy. But your life has certainly been blessed for having your grandfather been a part of it...and that is something to truly celebrate.

Keeping you and yours in my thoughts. =)

Fuck man. *sigh*

I knew I left a comment somewhere signed in under the wrong name. I just took over a site and it's email. That top one is me. Sorry.

:( As I said. I'm very sorry. He sounded like a wonderful influence on your life.
