Dad, this is the first Veterans Day I am spending without you. I feel sad for me that you are not here with me, but happy for all those Veterans Days we did spend together. I went to Southern Pines Gracious Living and walked the hallways we used to walk. I sat at the dinner table you used to sit at with Ruth and Clint. I visited with some of the veterans and residents. It made me feel better. I love you and miss you. Like Cheryl I cherish the wartime stories and appreciate all you did. Happy Veterans Day.......you are the greatest generation,
Karen and Patrick
Dad, today is Veteran's Day, and all I thought about was you, my hero. I remember all the stories you shared with us about the war. I am so proud to be the daughter of a WW II veteran. Today, you would have gotten a card telling you how thankful we were for your service in the War, and proud we were of all you did to free France, Germany of a terrible dictator. Most of all we are proud of you because you cared enough to fight for our freedoms too. Dad, I miss you and you are always in my thoughts and prayers. I look at your purple heart with tears and say "thank you", you truly will always be my biggest HERO for all you have done for our nation and our family. I love you and will keep your stories and memories close to my heart. Say hello to Mom and Grandma Fazi for us. Rest in peace Dad, you deserve it. All our love, Jim and Cheryl and Lisa, Jimmy, Shari and Adam.
Happy Birthday Dad! I know you have been celebrating all month!! I miss you, as does everyone else. It calms me when I look back at all the pictures of the times we celebrated your birthday together.....I was very fortunate......we had a picnic in your honor last week....I know you and Mom were smiling down...you would both have loved it. We will continue to celebrate both you and Mom....give her a kiss and hug for me. I love you both.
Dad, today was to be your birthday. You would have been 93 years old. I thought of you all day, and thanked God for all you did for all of us. I miss you and miss visiting you and bringing you malasadas and stuffed peppers and spaghetti and meatballs. I saw some Babe Ruth candy today and thought of you also and how many candy bars we bought for you. Dad you are still missed and loved more with each day that passes. I think of you often and smile in my heart knowing that you are in Heaven with our Lord and that some day I will see you again. I love you Dad, more than you will ever know.
Thank you for all you did for me and my family and my sisters and brother. You taught us a lot and we are who we are today because of your teaching us to work hard and discipline our lives.
Happy Birthday Dad, I hope the angels are celebrating with you and Mom. I love you - Cheryl
Today we remember the soldiers who lost their lives seventy years ago..... My Grandfather, Mandy Nunes, was on one of the first waves to storm Normandy. How he survived that day, I will never know, except by God's grace. I would like to honor My grandfather in this forum. Thank you for ALL your sacrifices,Grandpa. Thank you for serving the people of this Country, and protecting others in foreign lands. Love you.
Happy D's Day Daddy. Always thinking of you. Miss you terribly. Its been 70 years today you landed in Normandy. You are my favorite Vet, my hero!!
papa we love you and will always miss you
Celebrating a life well lived. We will cherish the memories forever.
Dad, it has been a month now, since you left us, and I feel this empty void. A void that I cannot explain, other than missing your sweet smile, your funny lines and you constantly wanting me to go get Mollie!!!!! The last several years have been a real roller coaster ride for us both.. I am sorry you had to endure the last several months of being in a long term care facility, but youknow I was with you every step of the way. I am so thankful for all that you did for me and all of your family. You have been a tower of,strength and you really taught us well. You will always live in my heart with Mom, and I will never forget you. Thanks for making me a better person. I love you. Karen
Daddy, I miss you already. I know that you are walking side by side with Jesus, Angels and Mom. You have taught me alot, and even though you always wanted me to be tough, saying good bye and laying you
to rest was the hardest thing I ever had to do. Sorry I wasn't so tough...I will see you again someday, for now, you will be in my heart. I love you Daddy. Rest in peace...
My deepest sympathy.
Cheryl, so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family,
Cheryl, Sorry for your loss, praying for you and your family.
from one vet to another Thank You for your service. It was an honor to meet you and get to know you. I'm glad my wife had the opertunity to care for you and have you live with her for the time you did. It gave her great stories to share with future generations. I'm sure you will never be forgotten
I was always so proud of Grandpa for his service to our country during WWII. I have many memories of him telling us stories from the war, and the battles he fought in. I never grew tired of hearing that part of American history from a man who lived it. I believe without a doubt that God protected him overseas and graciously brought him back so that he could leave a legacy behind of the importance of family. I remember interviewing Grandpa about his experiences for a history project when I was in high school. I'm sure it was difficult for him to recall those events, yet he did so with courage, pride, and yes, even a few tears. Later, as an adult, when I briefly lived in Florida, I enjoyed visiting him and Grandma; taking walks through their community (he always would stay close by as we walked by the canal in order to point out the alligators nearby-even then he was watching out for his family; also going with him and Grandma to the flea markets and watching him barter. Grandpa, you are missed by your family! You truly are without a doubt a member of the greatest generation ever!
Condolences to all my cousins on the passing of their dad. I recall many happy hours as a child playing with you, under the watchful eye and commanding tongue of Uncle Mandy. Prayers for his peace in Christ.

Please know that we are thinking of you and your family during this difficult time. He was a patriot and a true hero who lived his life well, and we are all proud of him. God bless him, and all of you.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
We will miss you grandpa, you were an example to us all.
My deepest sympathy to the Nunes family. Your loved one was blessed with length of years (Ps. 90:10) and will be deeply missed. God cares and will be victorious over the enemy. Is. 25:8

It was an honor to be the grandson of a true patriot and defender of my country. I will miss grandpa dearly. He was a great teacher in many different areas of my life and will cherish the grandson grandfather relationship always.
I like to think that grandpas strength was passed to his grand kids and his love for his wife was unmatched.
I'll never forget the times in Florida throwing baseball around and him always giving pointers. The food he could throw together was amazing with what little ingredients he had.
I can truly say he was interested in everyone and would give you the shirt off his back. I miss you already but will see you again someday. Until then thank you for living your life as an example to us all and making the sacrafices for our families so we could have the freedom we have today.

Grandpa was a strong and courageous man and his time here was treasured by friends and family and will continue to be. We will miss you Grandpa.
Dad, I miss you so much. I am so sorry that you had to suffer as long as you did. I will never forget the sacrifices you made for me and my sisters and brother. You were a great Father who loved us all. We will miss you greatly. Now that you are gone, I think of all the things I needed to thank you for, and remember to tell you how much I loved you. I will never forget what you did in the War, and how you protected us and liberated others. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MY HERO NOW AND FOREVER. Love Cheryl
