Dear Aiello family,

Blessings and very good thoughts to you, with my sincere sympathy on your loss. I remember meeting Mike and all of you a few years back at the shore, and thinking he was the center of room, with depth, humor, sparkly wit, and a range of experiences and stories that seemed almost superhuman. I am grateful that I could know him for a little bit and more so, through the stories of my friend, Judy, over the years.

My very best,

Aunt Yolanda, and all the Aiello family, I am so sorry for your loss. How do you put into words all the feelings for someone who was so important in your life. Family gatherings, all the times at the shore, and just being there for me throughout my life, Uncle Mike was someone I will always treasure and miss deeply.As my mother,his only sister, was as close as a sister could be to a younger brother, our family was extremely close to Uncle Mike. When my mind travels back to any happy time in my childhood, Uncle Mike was usually there.I feel an emptiness and sadness knowing he is no longer physically here on earth, but I know he will always be in my heart. Love, Rita

Dear Yolanda and Family,
Elaine and I send our deepest sympathy to you and your children on the passing of your husband, father and grandfather Mike; our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time.
As I came to know Mike over the past 7 years in Lake Ridge I was deeply impressed with his love of family, his intelligence, wit, generosity and charm. I will miss our many conversations at poolside, in the fitness center or in the ballroom where Mike frequently was heard playing the piano for his own (and my) enjoyment. I will miss him. Elaine would frequently comment that I must have been engaged in some way at the Club House with Mike because of the smile I wore when I came home and I would share some anecdote about his job or family.
We will greatly miss his wonderful spirit of friendship.
Peace and comfort to all of you.
