For me it was Uncle Carlo ..... a tall man who always brought great joy with his family when he arrived at my parents' house. In these hours I thought a lot about the moments spent together and among all the moments spent with him and his wonderful family I have memories that are part of my growth:
- I remember him tall, with a big mustache and his black-rimmed glasses
- I remember that to talk to me he always had to bend down because I was a little taller than his knees
- I remember that once he came to Italy with his huge machine, very large (it was the period when he was in service in Germany), exactly as big as he was ... he put me on his knees to make me feel the joy of to drive. Unlike my three cousins ​​who sat me only in the middle and never near the window.
- when I came to visit him in Colorado he allowed me to use his Cadilac .... he liked Cadilacs.

I am truly sorry for your disappearance.
These days, the sadness and pain seems to only grow, but sooner or later the sun will return.
I embrace you all.

Per me era lo zio Carlo.....un uomo alto che quando arrivava a casa dei miei genitori portava sempre grande gioia insieme alla sua famiglia. In queste ore ho pensato molto ai momenti passati assieme e tra tutti i momenti passati con lui e la sua meravigliosa famiglia ho dei ricordi che fanno parte della mia crescita:
- lo ricordo alto, con dei grandi baffi e i suoi occhiali dal bordo nero
- ricordo che per parlare con me doveva sempre chinarsi perché ero alto poco di più delle sue ginocchia
- ricordo che una volta venne in Italia con la sua macchina enorme , molto grande (era il periodo in cui era in servizio in Germania) , grande esattamente come lo era lui...mi fece salire sulle sue ginocchia per farmi provare la gioia di guidare. A differenza dei miei tre cugini che mi facevamo sedere solo in mezzo e mai vicino al finestrino.
- quando venni a trovarlo in Colorado mi permise di usare la sua Cadilac....a lui piacevano le Cadilac.
Sono veramente dispiaciuto per la sua scomparsa.
In questi giorni, la tristezza ed il dolore sembra solo cresce, ma prima o poi tornerà il sole.
Vi abbraccio tutti.
