Frank- condolences on the loss of your father. I can see from the photos that he was a handsome man. He lived a long life. I hope many good memories of him will remain with his family.

Biography

Nonno was a man of few words so I’ll keep this short too and precise just like him. When we all
think of nonno, each one of us used the word strong. We are all standing here today because
he brought together this family. He gave us all life and we are all here because of his love and
his sacrifice. He truly loved each and every one of us as a husband, father, nonno and bis nonno.
Nonno, you will forever be in our hearts and we will continue to gather in your honour so you can
mangia and beve with us as you watch over. Until we meet again...


Nonno era un uomo di poche parole, quindi terrò anche questo breve e preciso proprio come
lui. Quando pensiamo tutti a nonno, ognuno di noi ha usato la parola forte. Siamo tutti qui oggi
perché ha riunito questa famiglia. Ci ha dato tutta la vita e siamo tutti qui per il suo amore e il
suo sacrificio. Amava davvero ognuno di noi come marito, padre, nonno e bis nonno. Nonno,
sarai per sempre nei nostri cuori e continueremo a riunirci in tuo onore così potrai mangiare e
stare con noi mentre vegli. Fino a quando ci incontriamo di nuovo...
