My dad was a phenomenal father. He was kind, selfless, compassionate and extremely patient. He loved to hear stories and was also the best story teller especially when it came to his life experiences and travels. He was clever and creative, he always had an uncanny ability to fix anything around the house. He loved to watch my brother and I grow and learn and was proud of all our accomplishments. His love was unconditional and I am so thankful and lucky for all the memories over the years.

I have been daddys girl for as far back as I can remember. Everything that made me the person I am today, I attribute to both my parents, but there is no more powerful relationship in this world than the bond between father and daughter. I miss him more and more each day, he will be forever in my heart and I know he will always be by my side.

My family and I thank each and everyone of you for the love and support you have shown us over the last few weeks. Your presence, messages, texts, flowers and food have brought us comfort and strength to get through this difficult time.

Rest in peace dad, forever your mija <3

a poem...

Never Forgotten

I think of things you used to say
And all that you would do.
At some point, every single day,
My thoughts will turn to you.

To lose you was a bitter wrench,
The pain cut to my core.
I cried until my tears ran out
And then I cried some more.

This wouldn’t be your wish for me
That I’d be ever sad
So I try to remind myself
Of happy times we had.

I know I can’t be with you now
And you can’t be with me
But safe inside my heart you’ll stay;
That’s where you’ll always be.

Cara Nina e famiglia,

Our sincere condolences to Nina, Giovanna, Nelson and family, on the sudden loss of dear Marco.
He will be remembered for his kind, loving heart, his generous, compassionate spirit and his unique, adventurous soul.
Marco’s curiosity and “research” made for interesting conversations over coffee, where he was eager to share information of all kinds and typically led to his encouragement to “check it out”!
His love for family and friends was evident; he will be dearly missed.
“A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts, through us, they live on.”
We will remember him; we are here for you.
Love Rose and Mike Francella

Love comes in different forms, at different time and space. Our love can not be separated as the love we shared was unconditional and without restraints.
The love we shared for one another, will remain in our heart and spirits until the end of time.

We loved you deeply in life and love you more in your absence. We are a part of you as you remain a deep and intricate part of us.

Thank you for being my father.

Dear Nina, Nelson & Ellen, Giovanna & Shawn and Nellie, Remmie and Isla....

Words can not describe how heart breaking this all is. Marco was such a sweetheart. Greg and I always felt that he was an extended Abuelo to Kallianna.
Greg and I were reminiscent of the times he would make the best Sangria when we would all be making tomatoe sauce.
How he would share the stories of his youth and how he talked about how he swept Nina off her feet❤️.
Marco we love you very much and may you rest in peace with our Loukas in heaven ❤️❤️❤️
