Happy Birthday, Nana. It amazes me that you would have been 93 years old today.

I imagine you’d still be just as feisty, beautiful, loving and protective as ever, and ever more beloved by all of us.

I miss you so very badly. There isn’t a day that I don’t think of you, your sweet smile and beautiful blue eyes; And the words of encouragement, wisdom and care you etched upon my heart.

I also think of how much you suffered all those months, and my heart breaks for you, my poor little Nana! You fought so hard, so very hard to stay here with us. Those sights, sounds, smells and tears, I will never forget.

You took a part of my heart away with you that day in June. So until we meet again, Nana… Ti Amo, sempre.
