My deepest condolences to Sandro and Karen, Marina , Gordon, Aaron, and Christian. I think of her often but especially in the spring when the callas she gave me come to bloom. Thank you Cecilia for being in my life. I have many great memories.

I met you, at first only through my mothers words and the photos you sent us from so far away, a place reachable for me only by the fantasy of a child, then came the day I saw you come down the airplane. I was so excited! You were so tall, so serene and your smile won me over immediately. You had so beautiful thin hands, but strong, which worked hard and did not spare themselves the effort, and this has caused you a lot of suffering from pain.
I have so many great memories from my travels to Canada. Trips that you have made unforgettable, thanks to your kindness of mind and availability, dear Zia. I would have liked really so much to take that plane and meet again but life has decided otherwise...
This is not a farewell dear Zia, because the good times we spent together will always stay alive in my present and my future.
All my affection in this painful moment goes to Marina and Sandro and their families.
Rest in peace. I love you
