We Are Glad You Are Here

I am glad you found your way back for a visit. Our thoughts are with my dad in September. It is 4 years later, and on September 9th we celebrated my dad's birth. Some days later, we mourned his passing. I tried to spend the next few trying to re-live the days we spent with all of you. Preparing for the celebration of his life and comforting one another. We still need that and I appreciate that you are here. Tomorrow marks his funeral. I think the day calls for solemn gratitude. I'm going for that. My dad was a very special human being. I think you would all agree. Thank you, God, for my dad. And for his friends and family who loved him, too. Whenever two or more of us gather in his name, he is here. He is here. Is that a little corny?! Perfect, now I know he is here! Love you all.

Flickr Photos - Our Trip to Torricella Peligna 2009

A big thank you to Dan Aspromonte for adding these photos - with captions. Italian and English. Dan, my dad would be so proud of you...and mad at me for taking so long to put these up. If you are still looking at this blog you will enjoy the photos. It was the BEST way to celebrate my dad. Being with the people of Torricella felt like a gift from my dad. A big hug. We are saving our pennies so we can go back some summer for the music festivals! We'll be back. Ciao, Michelle

Piera's Thoughts.. We should not lose the link to this. Thank you, Piera. Someone recently asked me to post about our trip to TP in 2009. I will post a link to pictures. Scroll allllll the way to the bottom to see my dad accepting his Toricellans in the World award which meant so much to him - as you will see. xo
