Welcome Louise Giusti (Mrs. August Giusti)

"He exemplified the generation that gave us everything we have. He was a gentleman's gentleman and a veteran's veteran." --Longtime family friend Steve Wittenberg

Good Mourning Widows.

Joy to you and me.

Today we welcome famous widow Louise Giusti wife of famous Pearl Harbor vet August Giusti, Navy survivor of the 1941 attack.

Mr. Giusti "went through a lot. He survived Pearl Harbor."

"A trumpeter in a Navy band, Giusti was assigned to the USS West Virginia on Dec. 7, 1941."

Using a small boat to ferry comrades to safety after the ship sank, August once recalled in a past interview, "I could see the pilot's face, and I'm sure he could see mine. All he had to do is fire another burst and I wouldn't be here. But he didn't."

Louise Giusti and August Giusti were married 47 years.

Fondly, Louise recalls August with loving words, "He was a very gentle soul."

Louise has their 2 daughters to support her through her grief. We wish her an abundance of mourning joy, today, tomorrow, always.

Mourning Joy:

Q: Where do animals go when they lose their tales?

A: To a retail store.

Mourning Quote:

"Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in highheels." --Ann Richards

After we remember Him, finger hug your pen.

Open that JOY-nal.

Write something.

Go ahead.

I dare you.

Have an abundantly joy-filled day Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
