We miss you from our home, dear Maria, we miss you from our place, a shadow of our life is cast, we miss the sunshine of your face, we miss your kind and willing hand, your fond and earnest care, our home is dark without you, we miss you everywhere.
Riposa in Pace
I was not there by your side to hear your last faint sigh,
Or whisper just a loving word before you closed your eyes.
When last I saw your smiling face, you looked so bright and well.
Little did I ever think, that it would be our last farewell.
The tears in my eyes, I can wipe away,
But the ache in my heart will always stay.
Your loving husband Filippo
Cara Mamma, there are no words to describe the pain of losing you, we were not ready for you to leave us. Death may have taken you away, but it can never take away your memories. You will always be in our hearts. We will miss you and love you dearly, our only comfort now, is that you are at peace.
Riposa in Pace Cara Mamma tanti baci da.
Your loving daughter Carla and son-in-law Peter.
There is a place in our hearts called Memory Lane,
In it dear Mum you will always remain.
Unseen, unheard but ever near,
You will walk beside us throughout the years.
Your loving son and daughter-in-law Ben and Lucy.
Mamma, I wish we could see your beautiful face one more time, walking through the door, looking always so elegant. I will no longer hear your voice calling me Gioia Licia. I know you can feel my tears and you don't want me to cry, yet my heart is broken and I don't understand why someone with such a beautiful soul and so precious to me had to die. I pray that God will give me strength as I struggle with this heartache that came when I lost you. Your love for us was unconditional, as was ours for you. We promise to take care of Papa and be there for him always. R.I.P. Bella Mamma. Forever in our hearts. Your loving daughter Lisa and son-in-law Paul.
Due to Covid-19, the Funeral will take place privately.
The Funeral will be live streamed, please email: [email protected] for details.
