For Nonno

I’ve been trying to get Mackinley to write something all week. Finally tonight he sat and wrote this all by himself. What a beautiful son I have. Mackinley was so proud of himself, “Look Mum, I didn’t even use my finger for the spacing!” Some days I just love being a Mum.

Mum thought it was the most beautiful piece of love…ever!! We tucked it under Dad’s lapel with a Holy Card of the Sacred Heart. Dad always had his mother’s rosary beads but Mum couldn’t find them. She and Nena went to Pelligrini’s today and bought a gorgeous black set for Dad and Mum bought herself a beautiful red and silver set and each bead was a mini love heart!

He looked so peaceful tonight and very smart in a grey suit and wearing the tie he was married in. A lovely rosary and farewell, just with the family.

Thank you everyone! Your messages of love and support have been overwhelming. I will reply to each of you next week. {{cyber hugs back to you}}
