Sad farewell Sisto Malaspina
It was sad to hear of the death of Sisto Malaspina, killed by a terrorist in front of his Pellegrini's coffee shop in Bourke Street, Melbourne.
He was a mate; a friend to all who visited.
He remembered you after years of absence; and after only a few occasional visits to Melbourne.
I had the pleasure of having coffee (many short blacks) with him earlier this year.
When in Melbourne, a visit to Pellegrini's was always my priority.
Pellegrini's will continue as an institution (because the coffee is just so good; simply the best) and the family will maintain that special relationship with the clients.
RIP (far too early) my friend.
