    I am heart broken to hear this news – Mrs. Molino was like a second Mom to me. She always welcomed my family and I into her home. She had a great attitude and always made me laugh regardless of her situation. She was a great lady and I will miss her terribly. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

    I will never forget when they moved into the neighborhood, the family asked me to eat over. They were eating spaghetti, being Italian we eat it often, but noticed something in the gravy, I remember asking what it was… It was Squid! I was afraid to make something of it, ate it and LOVED IT! I have not stopped eating Calamari sense. That is just one of my Great Memories of their Family that shaped me, growing up in that neighborhood. Bless,The Piotti Family

    To Marilyn Mellen and the Entire Family:

    The entire community at Traditions is saddened at the loss of our dear friend, who had such a strong presence there and was a friend to all. Always helpful in every way, whether assisting with the Holiday Fair, Rummage Sales, Candy Sales, helping us to decorate for an event, even just passing out napkins at Happy Hour. Marilyn wanted to be needed and loved, and she surely was! It’s hard to imagine the building without her. She provided leadership to other residents and acted as ambassador to newly moved-in folks, helping them to make a smooth transition. She knew everyone – and everyone knew her! She was so much a part of everything we did on a day-to-day basis. We miss her already and she will always remain in our hearts.

    John, Marilyn, Donna and Charlene…so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. She always had kind words for people, whether she knew them or they had just met. That is what I will always remember about her.

    John, Marilyn, Donna, and Charlene. I am very sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. It certainly bough back great memories of hanging out at your house the last couple of years in high school. Your mom and dad were great people. Your dad grew up and hung with my mom’s brothers in West Roxbury and knowing the high caliber of people your parents were meant that my mom didn’t worry about where I was or who I was with if she knew I was at your house. Warm, welcoming, funny, and no BS kind of people is how I will always remember your mom and your dad. I hope the good memories help you to patch the hole in your hearts that you have today. Those memories will keep her with you for ever. Thinking of you and sending hugs.

    Condolences to her children, and her sister Lorraine whom I also remember well. God bless.
