Cara Daniela, Bruno, Piero,
in queste occasioni nn si sa mai cosa dire ed è difficile trovare le parole giuste e certamente la distanza nn aiuta ad esprimerle.
So che zia da tempo nn stava bene e penso che ora è in un posto dove nn esiste dolore ed è certo che resterà nel nostro cuore.
Noi l'abbiamo conosciuta attraverso i racconti di mamma...
storie di quando erano bambine e giovani ragazze, poi attraverso le belle foto che ci inviavate per le feste di Natale od eventi particolari e questo ha creato un legame familiare imprescindibile che mi auguro continui attraverso te Bruno e Piero.
Qualcuno può pensare che siamo un po' strani come "famiglia" perché nn diamo voce hai sentimenti!
ma la cosa importante è che quando c'è bisogno ci aiutiamo.
Spero che queste parole vi siano di conforto.
Con affetto Rosa Vita e Pino
