A Song for Franco.

A Song for Franco....

When I was 13, my cousin Franco was the first to greet my grandmother and I on my first trip to Italy. I have such wonderful memories of that trip with her. Franco passed away yesterday -- he was too young. And he suffered for too long. I wish I could be with my family in Martina Franca. And I wish I could hear his laugh just one more time. This is my song for him.

    So beautiful! Your voice is so beautiful even though I couldn't understand a word, but the feelings behind the language spoke volumes. How often were you able to see each other? Did your cousin come here for the wedding, or was he already too sick to travel? I love you and your family. My heart goes out to you at this time of loss.

    @Barb Card - Thank you, Barb. I didn't have time to put the translation in, but my family in Italy knows what it says. :-) I haven't seen him since 2007, the last time I was there. He was very sick -- it's very sad. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. :-)
