Hey Big Brother
Still thinking about you. It's been a month now without you in the world and it seems I can't let you out of my mind. I'm thinking you're up there with mamma and papa and my Johnny too. Olympia and Stella are there with you too
I want to thank you for all you did for mamma and all of us too. It was a pleasure spending time with you in your last few months here on earth. So sorry you weren't able to talk to us. But I want you to know that I was so happy to be there by your side on that last night with Rose, Angelo and Sarah. and your Andrew. After we prayed the Our Father together I felt you were happy to leave us and finally rest. All our memories of us as a family even without papa are a treasure to hold in my heart until we meet again for our great reunion in heaven. I love you
Tell Johnny I miss him terribly.

When I was young he would bring me to BeefSteak Charlie’s for a birthday dinner. We would go every year. Ya know, when you are one of eight kids, and you aren’t the oldest and you aren’t the youngest, you don’t get “Singled Out ” often, you tend to get lost in the shuffle. I was special once per year...no matter what...thanks to Uncle Andy. We shared a birthday, and for that, my dear uncle, made me feel like I was queen for the day. I will miss him but will always have BeefSteak Charlie’s!!! ❤️❤️
I love you, Uncle Andy
