9.20.07 – My Uncle Nick died today. He was 72 years old. He battled lung cancer for over a year, and leaves us today. Uncle Nick & Aunt Diana were also my God-parents, and one could not ask for a better couple. Today is also my 50th birthday and I am grateful that I was able to see my uncle before he passed away. He remained strong and aware until the end, and recalled my Christening during our visit. Our family will comfort each other and support Aunt Di, my cousins Diane, Frank and Michael, and their families, my Mom and Dad, AJ & UD , who lost their older brother, and my dear Grandmother who will have very difficult moments now to bury her oldest son. God Bless you Uncle Nick, I will never forget you, and I Love You.
