The death of Michele Savoia has been a true tragedy and an overwhemling loss. The funds in this account will help his daughter Gabriella, the only blood relative, put him at rest and secure his legacy the way Michele would have wanted.
My father was one of a kind. Anyone who met him knew that he was special. With all the press and media, he would be beyond proud with himself. But most of what has been talked about is not about WHO my father was. Only his accomplishments. He was a father. A brother. A son. A person... not just an fashion icon. I will always remember my dad as the fun loving person he was on the inside. He could light up any room he walked into but to me, he was just my dad. The person I called when I had boyfriend trouble. Or if I needed advice on what classes to take. He has always been there for me in some way, shape, or form. He lived the life of a superstar but at the end of the day he was just my dad. I didn't care if he had two dollars or two hundred dollars in his pocket, he was always mine. My blood. And I will remember him for that. I am so proud of his accomplishments in life and I am happy to know he lived his life the way he wanted. And I want to put him to rest the way he would have wanted. I find myself at a place where I am completely overwhelmed. The expenses of dealing with the estate and the details to move forward with closure is more costly than I could have ever anticipated. I know he has so many friends that are hurting and want to help me and make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. This is a way that everyone can contribute and help me get to a point where we can freely greive and move towards closure.
Thank you everyone for the support, it means more than you know.
