Tributes

Fond memories of my uncle looking after me while my parents were working at night. I had lots of fun cruising with him and his friend instead of sleeping in my bed.
I will miss you Zio. RIP

My Brother,
Even though life may have separated us, I know that your spirit will be with me always.
When I see and hear a little bird chirping on a tree branch, I will know that it is you singing, laughing and recounting all your stories.
When I see a feather dancing in the wind, I know it is you gently walking alongside me. When I see the sunshine, I know it is your love for me, warming my face, heart and soul.
When I hear the rain, I will hear your words of wisdom and advice.
I will always remember our life growing up on a humble farm in Italy, and the new life we both made here in Australia with our beautiful families.
You have made me laugh, you have made me cry, but most of all, you have made me, me. No matter where I am, I know your spirit and soul will be beside me and forever with me.
I will miss you.
Your sister,
Annunziata.

Sorry for your loss Norma and Ernie. I couldn’t get up there to say goodbye but I’m sure our boys will be there to support you both. Leo was a kind man a man of simple pleasures but he was always there for you all and then to our boys Ethan and Logan as their grandad. We had a lot of chats over the years about a lot of things Leo and I will share them with the boys. You were a good father in law . See up there when we all catch up

Dear Uncle,
I wish I wasn't having to write a tribute to you, but I am.
You filled my life with so much love and laughter, I can still hear you now, joking around in mum's kitchen, your silly little stories to make us laugh. And that's what we did.
With a heavy heart and eyes filled with tears, I say "good-bye".
Now is your time to walk amongst the Angels and look down upon us, protecting us, guiding us, loving us.
I know dad has welcomed you with open arms and a handshake, pulled up a seat for you alongside him and poured you a glass of wine. Sit with him.
Watch over us.
Your niece,
Genoveffa

Caro Zio. I will never forget all the fun, unpredictable, knock-about times we shared with you when we were kids. Life was indeed full of surprises. May God welcome you into His eternal light. In our hearts always. R.I.P.

To a very precious and funny larrikin. Uncle Leo brought so much laughter to everyone he touched. When I think of him now I have a poignant smile on my face. I know when it is my time to pass he will be on the other side with a joke. Although I suffer your loss internally you will always be with me.
So this is not goodbye but I will see you again. Always in my heart. I adore you my uncle Leo.
Your niece
