Today is 15 years since Dada Gaudio passed. She was Papa's paternal aunt. She was kind, gentle, generous, patient, and spirited. She could talk to strangers like an old friend, and these strangers took to her as if she is an old friend as well. I guess I've written about her a lot of times, and always I'd say: She's the first person I want to meet in heaven. Mainly because there are so many things I want to say sorry for -- my petulance, disrespect, and refusal to love her when all she could do was love me so hard.
