I am celebrating the beautiful Eternal Spirit that is Sal Buccheri even as my human heart mourns the loss to his family and friends. The door was always open, the basement was our hangout, and the pool was a bonus. Sal called me "Popcorn Patty" can guess why. This Irish girl loves her Italian family, with patriarch Salvatore at the head. The angels welcomed a good and kind man this week.
