    Cara Zia Emma, dal viaggio di tanti anni fa, con mamma e Saro mi porterò per sempre il ricordo della tua amorevole accoglienza, del tuo meraviglioso sorriso, della tua coinvolgente allegria; delle risate al risveglio, quando ci hai accolte nel tuo lettone, raccontandoci nel tuo modo unico e coinvolgente, come ha saputo conquistarti il tuo amatissimo marito per formare insieme la vostra meravigliosa famiglia. Scrivendo mi scendono le lacrime, perché desideravo tanto tornare ancora una volta a riabbacciarti, ma non sarà più possibile!🥹 Spero che tu, ora in cielo, abbia finalmente riabbracciato la tua amatissima sorella “Tota” e i vostri cari genitori 🙏 E prego affinché possa trovare il modo per consolare i tuoi cari e rendergli un po’ più sopportabile la tua assenza💔
