Michael LaSalata, I met michael when I was to young to remember I was with my grand father Michael J LaSalata. The only way I have this fact is because of the long conversation I had with Michael D has an adult trying to find relatives cold calling every LaSalata I could find online. Our conversation was what seemed to be only a moment but lasted for hours. I send my condolences and prayers to your family from ours in your time of loss

My dad and I didn't always get along that well. We were too much alike. But I wouldn't give up the last few years with him for anything in the world. All the crankiness that plagued our relationship through the years disappeared and what was left was all the warmth and love he always possessed but was sometimes hard for me to get to. We always loved each other. On his 93rd birthday I was staying with him while Linda and Ed took a break. I made a cake for him. A very special lemon cake. Lemon was his favorite. I decided to ice it with a boiled marshmallow like frosting. I over cooked the cake and the frosting was way too sweet. The cake was disgusting. I cut a piece for him thinking that given his mental state he wouldn't notice. He took a bite and said in a very judgememtal voice, "Where ja get dis?", I replied, "I made it." bracing myself for an insult. He replied, "it's good". He never missed a beat. All my love for children comes from my dad as does my dancing talents and my good looks. I don't miss him yet because I feel him with me everyday as I do my Mom. I'll be eternally grateful for having been able to spend his last days with him. He never stopped singing or flirting. He had those nurses charmed and happy to be with him. We should all be so lucky. He had the incredible ability to seek out love and find it wherever he was and whatever situation he was in. Whether singing "Daddy's little girl" at every wedding he ever went to or stocking the ice cream coolers at Finast. Now if he could just send me the winning Mega Millions number from beyond. He told me he would. Honest! I believed him.I'd like to give a special thanks to all of our friends and family that stayed by his side through the years. My dad was a party waiting to happen and I have a feeling the party has just begun. Watch out Melvin Douglas there's a bigger star in the heavens.

LaSalata and Budris Families. My dear friend Linda, so very sad to hear about your Dad's passing. God must have needed another Angel because he only takes the best. Now he is reunited with his beloved wife and most likely serenading her in heaven. You were a good daughter to him and know how much he loved his whole family. So many wonderful memories from our teenage years, your parents always welcomed us with open arms, the more the merrier at the LaSalata residence. Wish I could be there to give you a big hug but please know you are in out thoughts and prayers, and always in my heart. God Bless your Dad and your whole family.
Love Robin & Stan Lichaj

Laura, Linda, and Mikey,
Yet another punch of sadness. Uncle Mike was such a goofball, and we so loved him dearly. I will miss his Antipasto, his singing and dancing and the love he had for all of us. Family meant so much to him. Grief can be so hard, especially during the holidays, but our special memories of family get togethers will help us cope. Wishing we could be there at this time.
