Thank you for paying visits to both my beloved father, "Pop" Alfred Mesnick and my dear Uncle "Frankie" Frank Lorito. It means a lot to me, and I'm sure to them. It was especially important that Pop keep family history alive, he had a real interest in where he came from and felt strongly about legacies, validating lives as to mean something in death. It's only now in his loss that I grasp the importance in it. And as fate would have it, finding his and Uncle Frankie's names in these archives, was truly a gift.
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 reliable and significant role model in my life. His love was absolute and genuine, and we were more than lucky to have him in our lives.
Although I am not on this site that much (too sad for me) I really appreciate the loving stories I come across and thankful to the many visitors who frequent Pop's and Uncle Frankie's pages.
Thanks to you I know Pop and Uncle Frankie are both appreciating all of this with their usual smiles, realizing in spirit that their lives and names will always be remembered.
My blessings to you.
Sincerely, Carla ("Forever Pop")
Prayers to Uncle Frankie's son, Michael, who passed away November 2015- rest peacefully with your beloved parents.
