Pupi Vaticano Bologna on Jan 15, 2019

Dear Uncle Tom, Patty and family, Aunt Mel was an amazing woman who lived through a remarkable era that ranged from the primitive mountain town of Calabria, Italy to make it to America and live the American dream. She pioneered the American traditions for our Italian family and passed her traditions on to all of us and there were many of us. But deep down, she never forgot her roots. She was a hard worker, quick to laugh, quick to snap back at you but full of life always. In her way she taught so much about just living and surviving through what life deals you. She had an amazing strength and resilience that brought her through 91 years to the day! As a child, she made many of my dreams come true and was always generous with gifts and treats. Whenever she brought me home for a sleepover, she made me feel special and privileged. Those formative memories were ones that were a foundation to my wonderful childhood memories that are with me still. I will always thank her and Uncle Tom for that. Though she is no longer with us, she's left a beautiful legacy in her daughter and grandchildren who are all very special people and each one of them have a beautiful part of Aunt Mel inside them. She has touched many lives by her unique and radiating personality and will always have a special place in our hearts. I hope you are comforted by the good and loving memories you have of her and know what a privilege it was for her to be in our lives. Heartfelt good wishes from Aunt Mimma, and Pupi and family

Mel on Jan 13, 2019

I am deeply saddened and sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one.
It was never God’s purpose for us to suffer the pain of losing a loved one to death. May you find comfort in knowing that others share your sorrow and that God promises us of a time when we will be reunited with those we have lost. Acts 24:15
