Mother's Day

Mamma. I know I am late with this post but anyway I want to celebrate this special day. My mother passed away on Easter 2001 when she was only 70 y.o. I miss her, a wonderful mom and a wonderful grandma. I was not a good son, my behaviour worried her but she had always a smile and good words for me. In my youth I spent my time playing rugby and I didn't want to study; only when I got married (22 y.o.) I began to be a more serious person getting an University Degree and joining the Coast Guard. However she tried always to understand me and always forgave me.
Also when she was sick and tired she spent hours to play with my children until the day she went to sleep and didn't wake up anymore. Ciao mamma, I will never forget you.

1999: Mom and I

1980: Mom and my wife Daniela

1958: Mom, her parents and a baby Black Knight

  2. What a wonderful tribute to your mom! My mom passed away in 1988 and never knew any of my kids....I sure know how you miss her. She raised a great son though!

  5. Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures. NB Sinead O'Connor's new album is very good, worth getting if you have not already...

    Love the pic of the baby Black Night!

  8. What a lovely post. I can very much relate. My mother was only 57 years old when she died.

    It is a very nice tribute to your mother. :)

  12. Of course you were a worry to her. All kids make their Mothers worry but it's only because the Mothers love them so much. I'm sure she was very proud of her Black Knight. Your Mum sounds like she was a very special, loving woman.

  16. Posts like this make me want to fly across country to give my mom a big hug! I'm so lucky to have her, and that she knows my kids. Your mom sounds wonderful (and I love the Baby Black Knight photo--maybe you were a Black Page back then?)

  17. Great tribute and pics of your mum Stefano. I'm happy my mum is still around at 86 - in good health and even driving. Hope I'm the same at her age.

  21. This was so lovely. My mom turned 70 this year - I can see many changes over the past year that reminds me that she is getting older.
    But I am very, very lucky - she lives 10 minutes away from me so I get to see her all the time.
