Ho sempre presente l’ultima volta che ci siamo incontrati a casa di tua sorella,che tu possa riposare in pace insieme ai tuoi genitori e fratelli e sorella ciao Tatuniell
I did not know you for long Antonio, but what a gift it was to me to see you smile when I walked in your room. You were a pleasure to have at our hospital, Jesus is holding you now.
« Il restera de toi de ton jardin secret,
Une fleur oubliée qui ne s’est pas fanée.
Ce que tu as donné, en d’autres fleurira… »
-Extrait poème Simone Weil-
Il restera dans nos cœurs, oncle Antonio, ce que tu as semé, le souvenir des tendres moments partagés, la douceur et la bienveillance qui te caractérisaient…
Il restera dans nos cœurs ton sourire…

Fondly remembering Tony, a delightful gentleman with a joyful soaring spirit. May his incredible life be a reminder to us all, that one person can make a difference .
Mai avrei pensato che ci lasciassi così presto, non mi sento pronta a dirti addio, il mio è un arrivederci, sei stato più che uno zio per me e i miei fratelli, padre, amico, confidente, non potrò mai dimenticarti, vivrai per sempre nel mio cuore. Ciao zio Antonio, ti voglio un mondo di bene
Your presence and your smile lit up every room you entered. From the first time I met you I felt like ‘Family’ with that warm embrace, kiss on the cheek and your beautiful smile. You will be missed but not forgotten
Tony (aka uncle Tony the Ox) I know we are not related by blood, but we are surely related in spirit. Getting to know you throughout the years was truly a blessing. You always made me feel like I was part of the family and that you were truly my uncle. I will miss you so much. Please watch over your family so that you don’t miss out on all the wonderful things to come. Go be with your love Aunt Gladys and say hello for me.
ti voglio bene zio Tonino. Con tanto affetto, tua nipote Candida
