A blessed soul who suffered the premature loss of a son yet persevered. Will always cherish his stories, especially of my own father, radio-wave adventures and in his youth zeal for a good
Party. For my cherished Padrino and those that survive him, especially Anna and Bruno, our sincerest and heartfelt condolences but let us be mindful of a life well lived and take these words from Rilke’s Letter from God:
Let everything happen to you – beauty and terror.
Just keep going.
No feeling is final.
Don’t let yourself lose me.
