What an amazing woman! My grandmother Theresa Merolli (Mamam) exhibited personality traits that will forever make me a better person. Her positive outlook on life and selfless acts of kindness were felt by many. She taught me so much about life, and I would not be the man I am today without her. I truly am blessed to have had her as my loving Grandmother. Mamam had a unique way of turning every situation or environment into a calm, relaxed environment. She would bring such warmth to a room, even on a freezing Reading, PA night! Mamam is in my life every single day. She taught me situational awareness and I find myself asking, "What would Mamam do, how would she react?" I am so lucky to have learned from her, she really did make every life she touched better. I am grateful that she is now with my Grandfather Nicholas Merolli (Pappap), and I know she has been waiting to hug him for a while now. This is a beautiful moment! I know that they are happy together again, in a very special place. I will always love and remember my Grandparents.
Sincerely, Nicholas Merolli IV
