Aunty Mary, Christina & Mike, the ones that love us never really us. His spirit lives on in each of you now. The grief that you carry stems from the love you had for him, let it become a source of strength as you move forward in life. When you think about him, smile knowing that he is where he belongs now. He is with our dad now, and nonno, mama Nancy, uncle Michael & uncle Guy. All the pain from the past doesn’t matter anymore. They are happy together, as they once were.
Love you Archie always dear brother in law you will be forever missed.
