Five years ago today, my bella nonna left this earth. She was my mother, my inspiration, my woman. She inspired me to be great women. mother, & wife. She taught me about life & love & family. She held my hair when I was sick and she told me I was gorgeous (like Grace Kelley) when I was awkward with braces. She introduced me to Saks Fifth Avenue (Thank the lord!!!). She taught me about pain (pancreatic cancer is an ASSHOLE) and she taught me about peace. I think about her everyday and my heart breaks when Catcher talks about his Grandma Louise that lives in the clouds. I love you more.
