Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family. There’s so much that should be said at this time, but no words seem adequate. Just know you’re being thought about and cared about, and we hope you find special comfort in knowing that your father and all he meant to you will remain in your hearts forever. Be strong, you have a new guardian angel looking after you! Steve please don’t hesitate to contact us. Unfortunately we are both experiencing the heartache of a loved one and maybe we can have a few laughs to ease that pain. Rest In Peace Mr. Mello
