My Dearest Joey,
This day we would have celebrated your 43rd Birthday. This day will be a celebration of the short time (22 years) you were here.
You will always be remembered with great love and many tears because we miss you sooooo! very much.
But to only feel pain and sorrow would not be fair to you.
Your life meant so much more to us, more than words could say.
You were here for a short time and we wonder if you knew all the ways you've touched our world and our hearts and everyone who knew you from the day you were born until God called you home and still continues today.
Now my precious son you're an angel and celebrate today with our Heavenly Father above.
As you already know you are the proud uncle of another precious nephew, Alessio Angelo. Now you are entrusted to watch over three beautiful nephews, Johnny, Adamo and Alessio. Dad and I talk about you to your newphs so you'll have a special place in their hearts for you. We'll keep your memory ever present and will ensure that they know what a wonderful uncle they have. You will never be forgotten, dear JOEY.
So today my dearest Joey we will celebrate your birth, because it was one of the happiest day of our lives. Sending you lots of hugs and kisses from the depth our hearts.
Always missed-forever loved
Mom, Dad, your loving sister Daniela and family, Joe, Johnny, Adamo and Alessio.
Nonna Auguria sends you her love
and best wishes.
