For my beautiful Strega nonna

by Gina (Melrose)

I have watched you suffer through many sicknesses and many downfalls. It’s so hard to watch as you have always been my rock . You’ve crossed all the milestones and beat all odds. I know that you are more worried about me ever losing you than anything else. Today more traumatic news. You have bone cancer. I couldn’t hold it together and broke down in your arms. You cried because I was hurting and promised me you aren’t going anywhere. It’s not your time you say. I need so many prayers for my little sweet non. She is so amazing and the most wonderful person I’ve ever met!! Please pray for her!
