  8. My strong and handsome nunnu! It’s been a week and I keep thinking that you’ll just pop up and eat ravjul with us or tell us one of your life stories that always has us in a fit of laughter. I will treasure our drives to the Maltese club where we watched you play cards and share pastizzis. Even though we’ve lost a brave and loving soul, we’ve also gained a guardian angel! We will love and miss you nunnu! We will be forever grateful and blessed that we were able to have you in all our lives! 🌹❤️
    Love from your favourite granddaughter (p.s your only granddaughter)

    You were my fishing partner for so many years with many good memories, and always there to help me with anything I needed.

  11. The day has come when we have to part & reluctantly go our separate ways, but not without all my ‘cherished memories, photos & laughter we shared together over a lifetime, & in all those years, we never had a ‘bad or angry’ word ever passed between us. You have always conducted yourself with pride, love, & kindness & a deep understanding, you were always a ‘man amongst men, & respected by all that knew you. I will miss & love you Uncle Spirou… Until we meet again & start a new chapter. I remain your ever-loving Nephew Erny. {Twilla) XXX

  12. Nunnu,
    I will always think of you and smile every Easter as we make ravjul with your great grandchildren and share your cheeky stories while remembering the times you spent with us.
    Your spirit will live on through us and your memories will be held close to our hearts.
    I am forever grateful I met your grandson Matthew as I gained another family and met yet you.

    Love you always and forever.
