Dear Maria, Antonino and Lucia:
What a sorrow to learn today of Melo's death! I have had the privilege of knowing him for more than 20 years, and my wife and parents too got to know him. Through him, and his enthusiasm when speaking of his family and his native Sicily, I also got to know you! Melo was such an accomplished and caring professional, always cheerful with his customers and friends. When he left the Watergate barber shop, I called him just to say hello, and express to him the sentiments of my friendship.
My wife and I have requested that the sacrifice of a Mass be celebrated for his soul. May Christ the Lord grant him eternal rest, and give his family consolation.

To the Smillo Family,
We just heard the news of Melo's passing. We are so sorry and are thinking of you all. He was a wonderful and kind man and we know he will be greatly missed. We have made a donation to the American Cancer Society in his memory. You all will be in our thoughts.
