    When the mirror is broken you no longer see your image. On that day 5th July 2021 that you departed this this world to join the saints it has not been the same again for me. Dad you were the mirror at which I looked at my life, the mirror at which I looked at myself is so empty that I feel in my soul. My solace is the fact that you live a righteous life. Every moment of your life is like a book on a path towards heavenly bliss.. dad when I close my eyes the image of you is all I see . The summary of togetherness from the cradle to your exit lingers on my mind it’s a memory that even death cannot erase. Your departure has made me broken and transformed me into a man .. Not by gender but by willingness to do what great men do knowing that death is the end of every mortal. The transformation that life is vanity. This death won’t separate us as I would soon grow old and exist just like you did and we meet again soon to continue as farther and son . Then my son & daughter also would pay tribute to me like I am doing today to your blessed memory .. Rest In Peace xox Adieu my mirror

    I’m forever greatfull to have such a loving, caring and bright person in my life. Nono taught me many things that have carried out throughout my life, from cheeky Italian phrases to passing on joy and happiness to others. Nono holds a heavy spot in my heart and I’m never going to stop making him and his name proud.
