Back in the day, the Melilli family were such wonderful friends to my family. Dorothy and Joe Melilli so went out of their way to provide direction and advice to my Sister and I. I spent so many happy hours in their home, in their general fellowship. Dorothy always had a ready smile. In this hour hopefully the family can find some solace in the knowledge Dorothy positively touched and affected the lives of countless individuals.
