It is with great sadness to say that my nonno has past away at the age of 88. He was very strong these past 2 1/2 years while he was in the hospital with my nonna always by his side and to help translate for me when I would always visit. He has definitely been an inspiration for me because he moved from Italy to Canada in the 1950's where he didn't know English and wanted to start a better life for his future family. Tomorrow/today a week ago marks his passing, but he will forever be in my heart and has touched many others during his life. While it has been tough I am proud to be 1/16 grandchildren.
