Dear Luca

Today is your grandpa’s birthday. My dad, not nonno who is your dad’s dad. You never met my dad which is such a shame, he would’ve loved you … and you, him. He was a great man who used to love cooking. You love cooking too and I can imagine the two of you in the kitchen trying out new recipes, he would’ve loved that.

He became an angel way too young and we all miss him very much. But there’s a little bit of him, in you … and that’s a good thing. Wishing my dad, and your grandpa, a very happy 72nd birthday.

Love mum
