Today's quote is in honor and memory of my dear sweet Uncle Tony. He was my Mother's oldest brother. He turned 96 this year in June. He had dementia and the past ten years were a progression of that. He never lost his sweet, loving nature. Always a smile for all of us. He made me the family scribe. When he turned 90 we had a big party for him and his family helped him make some wine to give to everyone. He wanted everyone to drink a toast to him at his passing. For you Antonio James Ciafrei. Loved by all who knew him.

"Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell."

What a lovely tribute to a loved one. There are a many of us who have such a hole, we just could not express it so well.
