We little knew that morning

God was to call your name.

In life we loved you dearly,

in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

You did not go alone.

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,

Your love is still our guide,

And though we cannot see you,

You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,

and nothing seems the same,

But as God calls us one by one,

The chain will link again.

To Our Nonno (Grandpa)

The love we have for Nonno

Will never fade away.

We’ll think of him, our special friend

Throughout each passing day,

We’ll walk into the room

And see his empty chair;

Although we know he’s resting,

We’ll feel his presence there.

The memories of his laughter,

His warm and loving smile,

His eyes so full of happiness,

His heart that of a child.

Memories are forever

Be they laughter or of tears,

Memories we will treasure

Through all the forthcoming years.
