Salvatore Urso

My grandfather "papa" urso passed away on monday night. He went peacefully during a nap in his home with my grandmother and danielle and nicky with him. We all knew my grandfather wasnt doing well, he hasnt been for a few years---but you just cant prepare emotionally for something like that. at least i couldnt. he was a great man, a great grandfather--the funniest grandpa! He will be greatly missed.
Jessie is flying in from SLC tomorrow, the wake is on thursday and the funeral the next morning...so things have just been crazy around here because tom and i have been driving back and forth to my parents house everyday and its going to be like that for the rest of the week. I am so glad my last words with papa on mothers day were "i love you papa" and he replied " i love you kelly" he loved briggy "looks just like tom" he would say at least 20 times during our visits. i know he felt very special to see his very first great grandbaby.
my grandmother is doing quite well, considering. she isn't in the best health either, but shes doing a lot better. ive had the baby by her side since papa passed away. she says its the only thing that can make her smile and feel happy---briggy is a very special baby---and a blessing to our entire family.
love you papa.

Oh Kelly, I'm so sorry to hear that your "papa" passed on. It's a blessing to know our loved ones still live on and we will see them again. That brings so much peace. My prayers are with you that you might receive the comfort of the Savior and recognize his tender mercies. May the blessings of the gospel ease you through this difficult time. With love, Auntie Katie & Uncle Bob

Kelly, I hardly know you, but it made me so sad to read about your Grandpa. My prayers are with you and your family. May you find peace and comfort in your memories of him and in the knowledge that you will see him again. God bless you.
