Precious son of Vita and Robert.
Adored little brother of Adriana and Matthew.
Sweet little Michael Anthony (Mikey) died at the age of eight weeks old due to respiratory difficulties. He had strawberry blond hair, hazel eyes and the cutest button nose. Doctors and nurses were amazed at how strong he was. We were all amazed at his will to live. Michael put up a strong fight and succumed to respiratory failure on September 17, 2000 while in his daddy's arms. His short life will be forever celebrated.
I would like to thank you for visiting Michael's site and those of you who have left him flowers and thoughts. You can't imagine the comfort it brings me knowing people realize how precious this little munchkin is to us.
If you have time, please visit his Grandma Virginia Bacchi and his Grandpa Anthony Tringone, who died only months before him to greet him in Heaven. Also, Michael's baby friend, Taylor Paige Parente (1 of my interments), is one of his playmates in Heaven.
With Sincere Thanks and Blessings, Mikey's Mom (Vita)
WITH THE SUN THERE WILL BE CLOUDS,
THERE IS BITTER WITH THE SWEET.
WE'LL LOVE AND LIVE IN YOUR MEMORY, DEAR SON,
UNTIL ONCE AGAIN WE MEET.
Michael's sister and brother have begun a charity in his memory. Please check out this link to learn more about it:
Blankets For Babies
Once, in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads, there lived a little water beetle in a community of water beetles. They lived a simple and comfortable life in the pond with few disturbances and interruptions.
Once in a while, sadness would come to the community when one of their fellow beetles would climb the stem of a lily pad and would never be seen again. They knew when this happened; their friend was dead, gone forever.
Then, one day, one little water beetle felt an irresistible urge to climb up that stem. However, he was determined that he would not leave forever. He would come back and tell his friends what he had found at the top.
When he reached the top and climbed out of the water onto the surface of the lily pad, he was so tired, and the sun felt so warm, that he decided he must take a nap. As he slept, his body changed and when he woke up, he had turned into a beautiful blue-tailed dragonfly with broad wings and a slender body designed for flying.
So, fly he did! And, as he soared he saw the beauty of a whole new world and a far superior way of life to what he had never known existed.
Then he remembered his beetle friends and how they were thinking by now he was dead. He wanted to go back to tell them, and explain to them that he was now more alive than he had ever been before. His life had been fulfilled rather than ended.
But, his new body would not go down into the water. He could not get back to tell his friends the good news. Then he understood that their time would come, when they, too, would know what he now knew. So, he raised his wings and flew off into his joyous new life, free as the wind!
