I am honored to be giving the eulogy at the funeral of my good friend and mentor, Antony Bellomucci. For those of you who knew him, he was a strong and admirable man who could inspire each and every person he came in contact with. All of us who worked with him and who loved him, have tried, in our own ways, to aspire to be like him. But alas, as with everything in life, there comes a time when the baton must be passed and when new blood must take over. Let us all pray for our late Antony Bellomucci, whose time to expire had arrived. His will be big shoes to fill, but, alas, he now swims with the fishes and I have taken over as the new godfather.
Written for Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. This week, Dan Antion, from No Facilities, is subbing for Linda and he has given us the words “inspire/aspire/expire” and asked us to use one, two, or all three in our post.
