|Thank you so much for paying visits to both my beloved father, "Pop" Alfred Mesnick and my Uncle "Frankie" Frank Lorito. It means a lot to me, and I'm sure to them. |
Affectionately called and known as "Pop" since entering into my life at age 17 as a(step)father, he was without a doubt the most significant role model in my life, so with that being said, I really wanted to honor his memory with something that would last.
Since these memorials plant a timeless mark on those once lived and allows others to get a glimpse of someone whose life really mattered, to me, that was particularly comforting and important. I've also realized that my sorrow in losing those I love transforms itself into something larger when reading and paying respects to the countless and meaningful memorials out there that I have genuinely connected myself to. Love definitely transcends and takes on another dimension to loss when its shared, and for that I am grateful to the site.
Though a prior visiting member to Find A Grave, I truly believe it was fate that brought me to find both my relatives, where I could get the opportunity to eulogize them as they deserved to be. This is a small gift to them.
As Pop would courageously say during his many health ordeals when asked how he was feeling he'd always try to underscore it by saying "I'm terrific", but its only now in God's presence that I am certain of it. I hope that same certainty brings you and your family some solace in your times of loss and sorrow.
My sincerest thanks and blessings, Carla
(......I am "Forever Pop")
