It was with sadness that we learned yesterday of the passing away of Stephen's Uncle Armando. He will be missed by his family both in Italy and Australia. He died in his home town of Bussi.
We took this photo of Armando last January in Bussi. He was standing outside the barber shop where he worked as a young man. He carved his name into the wall behind him in 1953.
Armando loved to show off his little town and was a gracious host. His taste for fancy liqueurs was legendary. He loved life!
Today we planted an olive tree to remember him by. It will be Armando's Olive.
Our condolences go to the Paris and Gianguilio families.
Frans, Ami & Sara.
