Over the weekend, news spread of a tragic accident that claimed the life of 19-year-old Julian Spiteri. His friend, who was also in the car with him, Matthew Tabone survived. Matthew’s father, George Tabone (owner of Gram Collections) penned a heartfelt message on social media following the accident.

“In life, there are moments that you are grateful that the situation is a miracle,” George starts off in his post. “Then how can you say it’s a miracle when it’s a tragedy for someone else.”

“They’re mixed emotions between gratitude and a lot of sadness that only life knows how to give. Fly high piccolo grande dottore,” he said, saluting the memory of young Julian who was studying to become a lawyer.
