I didn't want to write this! In doing so, it feels like I'm closing a chapter of my life. It's painful to know that you have been gone since New Year's Eve. The thing is I keep remembering your mannerisms- how you ate a banana with your pills, scraping the bowl for every Cheerio or is that me? How you'd tell me to think and not give while doing The Sun-Sentinel crossword puzzle. You'd always give me the Sports page after you read it yourself. I will miss our sports discussions. You loved your Dolphins. Super Bowl Sunday or the NFL Draft won't be the same. I have so many memories of us together that make me smile, and yet shed a tear. As I remember and reminisce, I'd be remiss if I didn't acknowledge how much of you resides in me. When I go into the world they're are to two things I'd like: For Christ to be seen in me, and for someone to say, "Leo, sure would be smiling with pride." My Pop Pop, you made the dash count.
A legacy of love,
Gigi loves you
