Not sure what to say?

Truly a great man! It is my honor to be able to say that Angelo and I were colleagues and, more importantly, good friends when I spent time at Rice University in the department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science between 1985 and 1994. I was only now informed of his passing. Angelo was a great scientist and has made a strong impact and left a legacy in his field. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Our deepest respect and admiration. We will keep you in our hearts.

Dr. Miele I will miss you so were like a father to me and my son. You always gave me advice on various situation. Looks like we won't make that luncheon to catch up. Mrs. Miele...please try to stay and family are in my prayers. Please let me know if there is anything you need.

Thank you! You set for me and many the example of a humble but genious professor, a caring and gentle but real hard worker, and a very pleasant company! Your memories will always remain in my heart!

Angelo was a giant in his technical field. His many contributions to Flight Mechanics will live for generations. He was a kind and brilliant man that never stopped teaching and conducting research with his many students. He brought great recognition to Rice University and its engineering school.

My thoughts are with the family in your time of grief. May your memories bring your comfort during these difficult days (Psalms 9:9,10),


Dear Guymme,
I am very sad to hear about Angelo's death.
He was a good friend of my mother, Pieretta Ferro for many years. My mother also died at the end of January. I will miss her forever as she was my idol and tower of strength. Angelo represents an era gone by. I miss the past and fear the future. My thoughts are with you.

Dear Gymme, I was one of the many students and researchers who had the good fortune of studying and working under Angelo's guidance. His technical knowledge, his broad culture, his desire to help, and, last but not least, his warm personality made him an excellent teacher, advisor, mentor... and, needless to say, a great friend. As we both came from Rome, we often shared memories of our families, our city, our country. Life kept us apart for long periods, but I shall never forget him.
