Cathy, I watched that whole video.  It was truly a celebration of a happy life.  Typical of Italian and many other cultures. life evolves around family.  Well, I watched it and smiled during the photos of you and the family and family members I have not met.  I was okay until the final seconds of the video with Sal waving goodbye.  Then I lost it.  Thanks for sharing that video with us.  Sal my you rest in peace.  Dominick

Like you, Justin, I welled up pretty quickly.  The worst part is that I saw the video at the tribute and it did the same damn thing to me then.
I can't remember which one of you Aussie's said it but it fits here.  "It could bring a tear to a glass eye."
I miss ya pal,
Dom
PS-  Cathy, you really are something special. 
PPS- Cathy has  one heck of a great story about Sal, the beach, and waving. It sure made me feel good on an otherwise tough day.

Spot on Dominick.
Like Sal, Wallace was a 'one of a kind' - and they were also good mates.

Ahhh, thanks Dominooch and Justin!  Wallace was a good guy, and is missed around here for sure.  He was a fun contributor.
Justin, My apologies, New  Zealand it is. It even shows it in your avatar.  Roll Eyes
I'm Sicilian, so that would be like calling me Italian, lol.

Thank you all, so much, for your kind words about the video. I know it was quite long, but I really wanted to show all the sides of my wonderful husband, in pictures.

Dominick, I thought it was interesting that you said the same exact thing, as my sister-in-law when she saw the video. She said that she held it together until that last shot of him driving the boat and waving goodbye. I wanted to tell you that I took that video in early August 2019. Just one month before Sal was diagnosed. We never went on the boat, just the two of us. Never! We always took one (or both) of the kids, or Sal took them, or we took my father and/or brother (who both loved to go out on the water), or Sal took his brother or buddy or whoever else might want to come along. But, on that day, just him and I went to get the boat and, unfortunately, we found that it wouldn't start. Sal was determined to get out on the water and so he told me to wait for a bit while he ran to get a part that he needed, replaced the part, and had the boat running in no time. Typical Sal! We did a little fishing and a little crabbing, that day, but it was more about being on the water and enjoying each other's company. I did not know it be my last time on the boat but at least I have the wonderful memory of a day on the bay, with my very best friend!

Wishing you all a lovely autumn weekend and sending you all my best!

I don't have much to say but  a warm thank you Cathy for sharing with us. Although I never met Sal in person, I feel that he was a family member. May God bless you and your family. Scott
