  9. From Gianluca:

    Dear Roberto, I hope that this letter reaches you wherever you are, together with all the people who are victims of this great tragedy.
    I don’t know if I’ll be able to express all the sorrow, the pain I feel inside, but I still want to relive, through the words, the memory that you left.
    Did you love your land, your job, the nature; loved rigopiano, wonderful place that mirrored your personality. Did you want, with your job, as a mission, to enhance the abruzzo, which you loved so much, and this was one of the things that in our friendship brought us together, just the love for our land.
    My thought in these days are constantly made to those who unfortunately is no longer there, to their families and to all the people who are suffering for this.
    It hurts to think about human frailty, in front of the power, sometimes devastating, of nature, and I can’t even imagine what you have tried in those tragic endless moments. Goodbye my friend.

  17. Daniella thank you for the update. My heart breaks for all those touched by this awful tragedy. May God be with all of the. My love and prayers go out to all. I’ve always known my family was from Abruzzi, I’m still learning more about them and my dad just sent me a pic of our family coat of arms and I’m waiting for my aunt to send me our family book. Knowing this just brings it a little closer to home. May God put his hand of Protection over Italy and keep her safe from further tragedy. I’m so blessed to be part of this group. I may not respond too much but I always read it and am so grateful for all the work everyone puts in to help us feel just a little closer to our guys.

  18. Thanks Daniela for keeping us informed. Such a sad time for Gianluca and so many families in Italy and now even some of the people who were helping with the rescue efforts. Nature is so beautiful but, as Gianluca said, its power can lead to destruction and devastation. Keeping the victims, their friends and families in my prayers and also dear Gianluca who is so tenderhearted and has lost a dear friend.

  19. It’s over. Also in the long Italian night the last two people were extracted death.
    29 people have had their lives shattered by the avalanche that swept everything.
    Two survivors and rescued, yesterday in an interview said that they had not realized it was an avalanche, they thought of a strong earthquake.
    The angels have protected children who had gathered to play in that room that has withstood the impact.
    Our prayers join with those of so many people these days announced in this way their closeness.
    Thanks are due to all the rescuers that with commitment and effort managed to save precious lives 9.
