DURANTE ( LEONDINO)
My Dear Leondino,
I do not know where to start. 60 years of blissful marriage, we formed a beautiful family, three children, Lina, Diana (dec), Enrico, son and daughter in law John and Leonie, six grandchildren and a great granddaughter. A man of Peace, Love and Respect with all. I do not know how to live without you at my side. I thank you for your great love for me and the beautiful holidays we shared with our family. Please give Diana a big hug and many kisses from me. I loved you since I was sixteen and I will love you forever.
Your loving wife Romanina. Riposa In Pace Leondino
Thank you for all the times I have needed you most, for all your loving care throughout the years. You touched my life, shared my days. I will cherish it all, your songs, your jokes, your protection, your warmth. You were the best Dad, the best Nonno and the best Nonnino.
I loved the way you loved my John and treated him like your own. You were our rock. In my eyes there lies no vision but your dear face. We love and miss you. Lina and John xx
I will never underestimate how incredibly fortunate we have been to have had you in our lives. The perfect role model, mentor, Dad and Nonno. You worked so incredibly hard to make sure the family had an abundance of food, love and laughter. Your beautiful traditional family values are so deeply entrenched into our lives and will be your legacy, for that we are eternally grateful. You maintained your amazing sense of humour and showed all you were in the fight for life, love and laughter right to the end.
Ciao Dad, We Love You Enrico and Leonie xx
Our dearest Nonno,
We know how hard you fought to stay with us, and that you stayed for as long as you could. Our hearts ache for you, but we find comfort in the memories we have of this weekend past, you made us laugh the whole time, as you always do, and that is how we will take you to eternity with us. To the best man we have ever, and will ever know, Salute Nonno! Melissa, Michael, Jake, Chris and Maddy xxxx
To our Nonno,
We are devastated to lose you, but we will always cherish our memories with you. The school holiday stays, the slow drives to Sizzler, the jokes and endless nicknames, the laps around the stairs, your songs, and most of all your cheeky, effervescent spirit. We will miss you at the head of our dinner table, your leadership on sauce and wine day, the tune of Arriverderci Roma, your measured pace, even when we're in a hurry, and yes, even the lectures.
You taught us the true meaning of family and we will miss you dearly.
From your loving grandchildren, Jaymes, Alex and Carly xxx
