Everyone, What to write? How can you become so fond of somebody in such a short time? Believe me, it was much more than the great food that he made. I am so sorry for your great loss. He truly was one of the good guys. You just knew that every smile, every conversation and every handshake was genuine. He will be missed and no words can take away your pain. My hope for you is that everything that everyone has written here will reassure you that you will be together again. God bless you all.

Ciao cuggi'...non ci sono parole per descrivere il dolore che abbiamo tutti nel cuore. Purtroppo siamo anche lontani e questo rende tutto piu' difficile.Voglio ricordare di te il tuo sorriso, quando mi prendevi in giro con i tuoi "Cuggi', quannu veni??", quando volevi portarmi al concerto dei Pearl Jam nel 2000, i bagni al mare, le mangiate insieme e le tante risate fatte sul terrazzo di Zia Peppina...Ti amero' per sempre.Sono sicura che sarai al nostro fianco..soprattutto vicino a Zia Maria e Settimio, ai tuoi ragazzi, ai cugini e nipotini....e darai a tutti la forza e l'amore che hai sempre dato...Sei il numero 1!!...ricordi:"Make a picture??"...Yes, of you in my mind and heart for all rest of life. We love you...and love you all zii e cugini...Con amore immenso Maria Teresa e tutti noi

Non dimenticherò mai il suo dolce sorriso e la sua simpatia.

To the Cresta Family,
Gianluca was one of the very first friends of my husband's (Dom Manno) that I met some ten years ago and I liked him the minute I met him. He was a warm and friendly man, with a great sense of humor. He and I had an inside joke that carried on for 10 years and I will miss the laughter. We lost a beautiful, young soul, however God has gained. My prayers and thoughts are with you everyday during this sad time. Rest in peace, my friend...miss you.
October 03, 2012
There is an angel in Heaven with a beautiful, bright smile and his name is Gianluca. Godspeed my friend. I'll pray for your family through this incredibly sad time for them.

Do not stand
at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds
that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight
on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the
morning's hush
I am the soft uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft star that
shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there.
I did not die.


The Crestas and Sara,
I'm very sorry to hear about Gianlucas passing. Treasure the memories of him and he will live on through you. God bless.
October 02, 2012

Gianluca was an angel here on earth that was taken from us too soon. I remember how he used to walk to our house every
morning , during his early school years, so he could accompany my sister, Silvana, to hold her books and her hand on the way to school. His kind ways and generous demeanor continued throughout his life. I am so saddened by
his loss and extend deepest sympathy to his wonderful family on behalf of myself and the Posa family.

October 02, 2012
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
