My Dear Turi, Behind that hard exterior was a soft and gentle heart who wanted nothing but the best for his family. We shared a colourful and memorable 52 years.
Rest in Peace Mio Caro, knowing I will be well looked after by our greatest achievement, our six beautiful girls.
Your loving wife, Franca.
Papa, you always said that life is like a wheel that turns, a cycle that begins where it ends. You used your rich creative hands full of loving natural purpose to give all who knew you the gift of nature's beauty and a home where all felt welcome. The happy memories we shared will always make us smile. Thank you for teaching us the value of family. We will always be there for each other unconditionally. We will look after Mum and love you forever.
Your loving daughters and families.
