NICOLA LUVERA my grandfather

 I've written about my grandfather, Nicola Luvera before:
https://paulluverajournalonline.com/weblog/2014/07/nicola.html He died on Independence Day, July 4, 1956 well  into his nineties. This Italian immigrant never learned English and had almost no education, but was hard working. His courage in immigrating to Canada and earning enough to bring his family too, illustrates what a unusual person he was. He worked  hard all his life. First, as a railroad hand installing track, then in  the coal mines and the saw mills until he joined my dad in the family grocery store. He came to work  every day to  arrange the beautiful  vegetable displays until he died. God rest the soul of this good man. Nonno nanna
