Remembering Mella....I was sorry to read of Mella’s passing. My maiden name is De Dominicis .....your parents and my parents were close friends. They often went to the opera together. As a matter of fact my parents were visiting your parents when your father died.

Mella was my father’s secretary for a while. My father was a public accountant She would go with him to his various clients’ offices. That is where she met Nick Casciano to whom she was engaged for a while.

My brother Billy and I ( our sister Lucia died of few years ago) send our thoughts and prayers to to Mella’s family
