Caro Turi,

Ci siamo amati dal primo giorno che ci siamo conosciuti.

Siamo stati insieme per 62 anni e mi hai arricchito la vita.

Ti ringrazio per l’amore che hai dimostrato verso me, i nostri figli e nipoti.

La tua generosità era immensa.

Mi mancherai tanto; sarai sempre nel mio cuore. Goditi il meritato riposo caro.

La tua amatissima per sempre Filippa “Fina”.


You lived your life to the fullest and by your life principles:

being of service, humble, honest, respectful, hardworking,

generous and full of integrity all of which have been instilled in us.

We feel blessed to have had you as our papà and will be forever grateful and missed.

~~~     Tarà papà   ~~~

We sincerely thank the staff from Eldercare The Lodge and in particular the

Sheoak team for their care and attention towards our loving papà.
