I am certain God has you sitting in a beautiful woodland, over looking some lake.

It has been Five months since you left us and I miss you as much today as I did then.

Rest in peace, Uncle. The world is a better place because you were here. You will be remembered often, and always with a tear and a smile. I love you.

I called him Eddie Speghetti. He hated it. But it was my job as his little sister to torture him, as it was his job as big brother to torture me.

I love you so much Eddie Speghetti! Until we meet again......I hope Mimi is holding a reunion.
