Edoardo is ill

My lovely Edoardo is not doing so well. He turned 95 (I think) in April this year. He was still at the bar most days when I was in Ponte a Serraglio. He was resigned to using a walking stick and he was not his usual sparky self some days.

He was always ready for a kiss on the cheek and keen to have a chat. He still drove from home each day, but I could see that he was slowing down.

I have heard through a friend that he has had a visit to hospital and the report is not great. 

If you are in Ponte a Serraglio and see him, wish him well for me and give him a big kiss from Debra, or maybe print this and give it to him.

my lovely Edoardo

Edoardo get well soon.

  1. You have my very best wishes Edoardo. If I was there I would give you a kiss on the cheek. x

    • He would like that – he likes blonds

  2. Yes a lovely man – a real flirt – always such a bright gentleman in the village
    Di Cant

    • Let’s hope he gets better soon.

  3. Edoardo, with ‘the lovely sparkly eyes’, please accept a kiss on the cheek from me too (who once was blonde). I love to be with people who have zest for life enough to sing when the mood takes them, I like to dance too and just at this moment, I could push my husband in the river – he is watching the football with two footy mates!!

    • I am married to a non dancer and it is recommended that he should never sing out loud. I hope Edoardo gets to have one more dance.

  4. Awwhh, get better Edoardo 🙂

    • I hope he gets better, I want to see him in the bar when I go back later in the year.

  5. always sorry to see this happen. my father-in-law is 90 and still doing well.
    but he is slowing down alot and not traveling like he did a couple of years ago. i wish edoardo well. say a prayer for a recovery.

  6. I wish him speedy recovery.

    • Thank you, I’m sure he will be happy to know people wish him well.

  7. Very sorry to hear that. We wish him a speedy recovery.

    • I’m not sure that there is going to be a recovery.

  8. Sending a big bacio to nonno Eduardo
