Merullos and family,
I am so very sorry for your loss of such an amazing woman. I have many wonderful memories of her and the time spent with her when visiting with my friend (Maria) and stopping over to say hi real quick or at get togethers. I feel that she is looking down on every single one of you smiling proudly, she is there to help guide you and show you what to do. Philomena (or grandma Merullo as I knew her from her granddaughter, Maria) was a very loving and respectable woman in all that she did in life and will be missed dearly.
Sending love and prayers!
