There aren't many chances in life to know a great person. Mike Merico was truly a great person. He loved his life, his family, and his friends. He appreciated everything that he was blessed with. He appreciated life. On November 2, 2009, kidney cancer decided that it was time for that physical life to end but through his memory he will live forever as long as we continue to smile and laugh as we think of him.
"I've known your Dad for years and worked with him at Starvaggi's! What a great Man, Father and Friend! He loved his kid's Mandy and Michael so very much! I used to call him the Great White Hunter! Oh the hunting stories he told! He is sorely missed by all that knew him and will never be forgotten! May He Rest In Peace! Love and Miss Him, Renee Mallicone"
"Today I saw one of my dad's friends and he said, "I miss your dad. I was thinking about the other day. I was out the Sportsman's Club. He always did the trout stocking out there. He'd give me a heads up a day early and let me take my son fishing early." That's just the kind of guy my dad was. He always tried to do nice things for other people, especially when it involved kids."
"Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there,
I do not sleep,
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glint on snow,
...I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet
birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night..."
I love you Dad.
Have a suggestion for us?
