Dear uncle Michele i hope you are finally at peace, you have joined Zia Pasqualina in the Cremazie Social Club in heaven along with my Mom and Dad, Zio Giuseppe,and Zia Francesca. You have had many hardships and but also many laughs. I will always remember you as tough person but also generous and kind. I never thought the all the first generation first cousins would one day all feel the pain of no Mom,s or Dad's to hug and kiss anymore. But life goes on, we will remember each and everyone on of you forever. I wonder if your first meal will be a BIG bowl of Cavatelli?? You will all be forever in our thoughts. R.I.P ciao Zio.........
