  1. Michelle, you were a little girl when I last saw you, and probably don’t remember me. I worked with your Aunt Theresa and Judi in the nursing home. I have been trying to find the words to tell you how sorry I am to hear of your grandfather’s passing. He was a very special man indeed; kind, loving; giving. He and your aunt; Theresa; Zia; your grandmother, Joseph…I can’t say enough kind words to express what a wonderful family you belong to. I smile remembering and hearing him call my husband “Harry” (his name was Howie but he kept calling him Harry; and Howie accepted it; answered to it and we embraced it. Sleep in peace Guido you will always be remembered.
