Hello All My Dear Cousins, Maureen, Mark, Mary Jo, and BethAnn. It's Marilyn Mancuso Panek here. Thinking of you in these difficult times and wishing you hope in the midst of sorrow, and some comfort in the midst of pain. I have Many Great memories of Aunt Mella (and Uncle Gene) at 194 Harvard, from all the great parties, great food, and staying overnight so many times in my younger days. Both Gramma and your mom, with their Great Faith in God, and wisdom, always taught us to say Good Morning God, and Goodnight God when we went to sleep. I am so proud to be part of the Armeli family, and although we don't often see each other, I want you to know that I pray for ALL my relatives each day. When my mom passed, Aunt Mella and I stayed close and in contact - she will be sadly missed by Me and Many People. God Bless Mary Jo and Dale for taking such good care of her. I had a 'tumble' this week, making me unable to come see you all today, so I apologize for that but want you all to consider yourselves Hugged. Love You All! God Bless All Of You! Take Care, Be Well, and Be Safe!! Love, Marilyn xoxo

My prayers are with you at this time of sorrow. Aunt Carm and I enjoyed our cups of tea during our afternoon visits. She will be sadly missed.
