To my loving Father, Thank you for teaching me, guiding me and loving me the way you did! I loved you in this life and will continue to love you throughout all eternity. You were the most important man in my life and I am so grateful to have had the time and memories we shared. You were an amazing grandfather to all of our children and they will live on your legacy always. Until we meet again...may you and mom watch over us all. I love you daddy xo!

Nonno has his wings. He was a lively man. We had plenty of fun the night that we spent singing "Hey, Gumbadi" and hearing about his morning ritual with Marina. My condolences to his three children. May Mr. Granata he rest in eternal peace. 💛💛💛

Father, we ask You to send Your peace to those persons who are mourning. Continue to surround them with family, friends and loved ones who will offer words of comfort. Give them sweet and restful sleep. Father, remove the spirit of heaviness, and give them garments of praise. In due time, bless their lives to overflow with laughter and joy again. As they take refuge in You, please help them to put their trust in You. Holy Spirit, we ask that You settle the hearts and minds of those who are feeling any guilt, resentment, bitterness, or anger. Help them not to look back but to press forward.
