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.
The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

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,
