It was always Nuni & Fish...

I still cannot believe that you are not here anymore. I'm not sure how I will ever get used to this. For now, I will picture you fishing, calm and at peace. But you should still be here with us and I will never be able to shake that feeling. There are just too many memories to share but some of my favorites are when we got stuck in the mud at Uncle Louie and Aunt Ro Ro's. When we visited Aunt Fran in her apartment in Boston when we were like twelve years old. She went to work and directed us not to leave the house. We did and got SO very lost. Two suburban kids wandering the city. I was panicked. You were non-plussed. Pancake Shapes with Hanners in the morning. How you ALWAYS had to put corn in your mashed potatoes and I thought it was so gross. That amusement park with Grandpa. Sleepovers and Atari. The Y day camp and Camp Woodstock sleepover camp. Laughing SO hard with Hanners. Trick or Treating. When you took me fishing and the line and bait flew in my mouth. Grandpa's saucy chicken wings. When you and Jackie had Amanda. She is such a smart and strong woman and a beautiful soul. That night in Maine when we talked and talked about our lives and you shared that your favorite song was The Downeast Alexa by Billy Joel, a story about the struggle and doubts of a fisherman. You kept playing it on repeat. Keep on fishing Fish, there is no more struggle, only peace. I love you always, I am so grateful for you and I will always be proud of you. Send me a sign James... Love, Nuni.
