Dear Dad,

You were our shining light, guiding us through our lives.
You were the glue that held us together when Mum
passed all those years ago and you always encouraged us
to strive and fulfil our potential.
You were always there whenever we needed you and we
have such beautiful memories filled with laughter which
we will always hold close and dear. You fought a long and
hard battle right to the end, and your tenacity was an
inspiration to us all. Your children and grand children
meant everything to you and your memory will live on
forever within all our hearts.
We love you and will miss you Dad.

Now with Mum and at eternal peace.

Lina and Adam, Robert and Susanna, Angelo and Susanne.

To our dear Nonno John,

You taught us the importance of family and were a role model
and inspiration for all. We will miss you terribly but we will
never forget your incredible loyalty and love for our family
and the many laughs and jokes we had around our
kitchen table. We hope you are reunited with Nonna and that
you are also spending your time in a wonderful garden,
in the fresh air, growing everything to your hearts content.
We miss you already and we will love and respect you forever.

Love Nicholas, Michael, Catrin, Joshua and Starr.

Thank you to all the staff at the Royal Adelaide Hospital,
Dr Andrew Scroop and Dr Julie Mencel
for their kindness and care.
