Nicola, tu es parti vers le paradis un monde sans maladie,douleur ou souffrance. J'aurais voulu te dire au revoir, mais je me souviendrai toujours de ton regard et petits gestes de saludation à l'hôpital. Nicolas, je ne t'oublierais à jamais tu as été le meilleur des amis. Une personne merveilleuse, plein de vie, malgre les éprouves de la santé, tu es reste forte, jamais tu as baisse le bras, tu as su garder ta joie,ta générosité profonde ,ton humour, ton ouverture aux autres , quelle chance que j'ai eu de tisser avec toi une amitié de 5ans que n'était que beauté et respect. Merci infiniment de m'avoir permis de profiter la sagesse de ta 3eme âgé du temps que tu m'as accordé et de tes conseils. Je ne t'oublierais pas tu serait toujours dans mes souvenirs Sans toi jamais je n'aurais pu continuer à apprendre l'italien, tu avait la patience pour d'enseigner, et la bonne volonté pour me comprend malgré mon accent colombien. Sans toi je n'aurai pas eu le courage de continuer travailler avec la dame italienne qui avait un mauvaise caractère, tu m'as apprise des trucs de ta culture pour adoucir son aptitude, et voilà que j'ai réussi à faire un bon travail. Sans toi Nicola, sans ton support, sans tes paroles, t'es recommandations je n'aurai pu faire face aux problèmes de santé. Tu m'avait toujours encouragé à bien mangé a prendre soins de moi, a me calmer, me reposer, j'écoute encore aujourd'hui ta voix (Santo Dieu non piangere so che è duro perte ma devi essere forte ora più che mai) Je doit te remercie pour m'écouter toujours parler des problèmes des personnes âgées de la Fondation, tu avait toujours l'oreille à l'écoute, la parole précis, le conseil adéquat , merci infiniment pour les capsules vidéo qu'on a fait ensemble avec des trucs pour bien vivre la vieillesse. !Que grande sagesse!! Nicola, j'ai toujours eu pour toi un grand respect et une profonde et sincère amitié, tu savait comme j'aime et défend les personnes âgées. J'ai été très hereuse d'avoir pu être pour toi quelques fois utile quand ta fille Mme Connie me demandait de venir remplacer Rosa. Parler avec toi était toujours un plaisir même quand tu me racontais les épisodes des filmes ou séries en noire et blanc que tu regardait, comment oublie tes anecdotas de la jaunes , tes histoires d'autrefois, la création de ton entreprise, tu es devenue pour moi un membre de ma famille que je me réjouissait de retrouver lors de nos sporadiques rencontrés, toujours on parlait au téléphone. Nicola. T'avoir observé dormir lorsque tu était a l'hôpital et ton départ si vite, sans attendre ton anniversaire m'ai fait réfléchir à notre dernier co versation où tu me disait que <Sempre stato contro la violenze > merci d'avoir accepté devenir porte-parole de la campagne de sensibilisation contre la maltraitance envers les personne âgées, tu m'as dit que tu as vécu toujours la bien-traitence au sein de ta famille. Et pour te rendre hommage et en honneur à ta mémoire, c'est du fond de mon coeur que je vais continuer notre idee pour que les aînés soient si heureux et respectés comme toi. Adieu mon cher ami, que Dieu te benice et te donne la paix éternelle. Je vais prier pour la résignation de ta famille. Madame Connie, monsieur Bruno , Mme Anne , monsieur Tony et toute la famille de Nicola de tout mon coeur et avec tout ma tendresse je suis avec vous et j'ai partagé votre peine.

Mr. Nicola Gervasi, He was always interested in what was going on in my life - even concerned for me at times - and hoping that things would work out in my favor. I knew him well enough to know that this was not an attempt at being polite, he was just being himself, always real, authentic and engaged. My sense of this man in the 30 years plus that I knew him was that he was a man who stood on principle, a man of action and a patriarch and business owner who lead by example. In his personal/family and business life he was the model for those around him. And, when I look at his legacy there is no doubt that the family lived by his example. Those of us who were blessed to have known him, shared a coffee, a conversation or even a cognac with him at various times, are grateful. In these more superficial times when people email or text and rarely look you in the eye - you always knew where you stood with Mr. Nick Gervasi and I for one will miss that. Rest in peace.

Wishing our sincere condolences to the Gervasi family, It was a pleasure getting to meet and know Nicola through my cousin Rosetta and her husband Bruno. When meeting him for the first time, he made me feel welcome and like I was part of his family. I will always remember his beautiful smile and unforgettable charisma. He was true gentlemen. His worth was measured by his generosity, the importance he had to his family, the respect he demonstrated to everyone who he came in contact with and the extraordinary legacy he left behind. I consider myself privileged to have gotten the opportunity to meet him and his wonderful family. May he rest in peace with his beloved wife Elisabetta Coraggio e forza per tutta la famiglia Giovanni Di Legge

I did not know him for very long but every time we met, he was always so genuinely happy to see us and very welcoming. I know he is up there giving everyone a shot of scotch. (I heard he did that here)I am sure he will be dearly missed and pray that he is with his loved ones that have already left this world. God bless him and may he rest in peace.
