  1. Mike Mancuso was my brother in law for 59 years. He was more like a big brother and a dad to me growing up since my own dad passed away when I was only 19. I was always welcome at his and my sister’s home. I was nearby for each of his 5 children’s births, and most of the time while they were being raised. They were all born when I was a teenager. Family celebrations following my own father’s death were usually held at the Mancuso home. Mike helped to take care of mine and Barbara’s mother when she was no longer able to care for herself. Mike loved to send home avocados and other fruit with me. I so wish that I could be there for his funeral, but due to health issues, I cannot. I will be praying for Judy, Mary Catherine, Patrick, Joe and Carl on the 26th..a very sad and difficult day for all of them, their children and their spouses. I had a lovely conversation with Mike when visiting in California in 2010. Once again, he was so hospitable to me. He was a kind and gentle soul, and a man of few words. He was a wonderful listener and cared deeply for people. Mike and Barbara watched our children when they were small and we went on vacation. When we lost our son, Danny, in 1976, they were the first to come to our home to offer their condolences. Mike was a devoted Catholic who often went to daily mass when he could at American Martyrs. I will miss my big brother for all my days to come, but I know he is whole and alive and well on the Other Side of Life aka Heaven so I cannot be sad for him. He lived his 85 years well and I picture him growing things with my dad in the heavenly gardens where many beautiful flowers and plants thrive. I also see him fishing in beautiful waters with my other brother in law Greg. He knows we will one day join him to celebrate life!
