I didn’t get to meet Roberto’s parents so zio Elio and zia Irene were my closest connection to meeting them. Zio Elio was very happy to see Roberto finally settling down, as he often told him how important it was to him that he find someone. He and zia Irene were always so welcoming and we will cherish the memories of our many visits.
We know how heartbroken zio Elio was at the passing of his beloved Irene and we are certain he is completely overjoyed, and at peace, to be reunited with her.
May you rest in peace zio Elio. We will miss you dearly, as we are missing zia Irene, and you remain forever in our hearts.

My Dearest Dad,

I knew this day would come eventually, but not this unexpectedly. I was you baby, your joy, and your princess. We were more alike than I ever cared to admit...stubborn, hard headed and hot tempered, but also kind, loving and passionate about the things that meant the most to us. There was never anything mediocre about you. Everything you felt or did was with your whole heart and you always did it your way. I hope you always knew how much I loved you. When I was born, you promised me the world and you gave it to me. I couldn’t have asked for a better daddy. I love you and I will always be your little girl. Enjoy “La Dolce Vita” in Heaven with mom.

Ti Voglio Bene ❤️ This is not goodbye, but till we meet again.

Your loving daughter,

Karen Warner

My dear Uncle Elio,
I will miss you and love u always💙 Please kiss my sweet Tante and Grandma for me. Growing up your house was always a fun place for us! Most of all, as silly as it sounds, I will always remember riding in the back of your black pick up truck around the block. I’m glad you’re free now from all your pain and worries. Rest In Peace my Uncle Elio
