  1. Dear Butterfly and Brian,
    Thank you ever so much , you are so kind.
    The doctors told us Monday he may out live us all . His last words to me was he did his last job . Paul went in to wake him up and he was smiling . I do so think he was happy he got his last wish to see his grandson and his family come to America to be with his family .
    Sal was 107 , long loving life .
    Again I thank you .
    Hugs and love HB

  2. Hello HB
    Uncle Sal was indeed a happy man. He brought all the people he loved together and got to see it. And the last years of his life were spent among family who loved him and cared for him. I don't think anyone can ask for much more than that.
    He must have had a very colorful and eventful life, watched history happening and the world changing around him. I hope he lived it to the hilt and enjoyed the love of a good woman or two. That smile on his face was a last gift to you.

    "I cannot say, and I will not say
    That he is dead. He is just away.
    With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
    He has wandered into an unknown land
    And left us dreaming how very fair
    It needs must be, since he lingers there.
    And you, who listen and who yearn
    To hear his step, and glad return,
    Think of him as still the same,I say,
    He is not dead, he is just away.”

    Love and hugs Butterfly
