  2. I’m going to miss you so much, Grampy!! You always made me laugh and never made me, or anyone else, feel anything less than loved. I’ll never forget at one of the Forlizzi family cookouts you did a hula hoop contest with me…our hoops bumped but you said to me, “Baby girl,I got one more hula in there before my hoop went down!” …we’ll have a rematch one day! Rest easy, Grampy…I love you…See ya when I see ya <3 xoxo
