Sorry for your loss. Time passes so quickly, it seems like just yesterday when all the uncles were together playing Bachi Ball or Pinochle. My families deepest sympathy to all of you. (Chris and Caroline)

Mead will be missed by everyone who knew him. His memory will live on with those who were touched by him. Mead was a mentor and a friend to so many of us. He told me how to keep things in perspective and in recent years he taught me how to cook "real" Italian. So sorry for your loss, Dianne, Jeff and Greg.

Dianne, Greg and Jeff,
I am sorry to hear about Uncle Mead's passing. It is always hard to lose a parent, no matter what the circumstances - for your Dad is your Dad. My heart goes out to all of you and your family. God bless you and may he rest in peace.

Love - your cousins, Claudia, Daniel, Gentry and Annalia Palmer

Dear Greg, Jeff and Family: We were saddened to read of Mead's passing. We enjoyed being his neighbor and sharing a drink now & again. I'll remember his 'Italian' sayings, and he had many. I can hear him now: "It's like my grandma used to say...(and he would rattle off in Italian.)" He was quite a character. I'm sure there was much joy in heaven on his arrival when all of his family and friends shouted: "Here comes, Mead!" Your family will be in my prayers.

Greg & Jeff,

I knew this day would come when AJ had to make this transition. I will never forget the warm memories I have of him. AJ welcomed me at Acor in 1994. We developed a good working relationship. I loved his sense of humor and laughs we shared together. He was not only an employer, but a friend and confidant. He will be missed and will always hold a special place in my heart. The Alaimo family will always be in my prayers.

To the Alaimo family, May God warm your hearts with fond memories and may my thoughts and prayers in some way console you.Toni DiPalma.(childhood neighbor.)
