Some days ago i received a very sad mail from my friend Joe. Charlie Melillo, who was an EMT at Harrison EMS, lieutnant at Port Chester Ladder 31 and an EMT for Empress EMS in Yonkers, NY, passed away too early. Because of the personal contact with Joe and the HEMS team, i decided to create a memorial page for Charlie here on my Mocpages site. I'm very sad about the too early passing of Charlie Melillo. Very sad that i haven't the chance to meet him in person. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, his friends, the HEMS team and all others who know him. We'll never forget you Charlie!
About this creation
In Loving Memory of
Charles William Melillo
Born February 4, 1985
Entered Into Eternal Life, October 21, 2012
When I am called to duty, God,
whenever flames may rage,
give me strength to save some life,
whatever be it's age.
Help me embrace a little child before it's too late,
or save an older person from the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout,
and quickly and efficiently to put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me,
to guard my every neighbor and protect his property.
And if, according to my fate,
I am to lose my life,
please bless with your protecting hand my family and friends
I apologize for any additional pain that I had brought on due to my extremely inappropriate comment, I truly do not understand what it means to lose a loved one, especially when it is sudden and unexpected. In no way did I intend to display Charles as a drug addict, and it was immature and extremely childish for me to do so. The post that I had made was months old, and I truly do not understand what was going through my mind at the time, but that doesn't excuse me for what I had done. I do not deserve your forgiveness, and you have every right to lash out on me, but I do ask you to forgive me for my extremely immature and insensitive comment toward Charles and his untimely death.
I would like to know where Mr. Matt Mancini got his information from and had the gall to put it on a public site about my son. My son did not die becasue he was drinking and doing drugs - how dare he say that. I would like to know where he got his information from when the Medical Examiner has still not completed his report to the family. Losing my son at 27 was difficult enough...reading this made me physically sick that someone would make my son out to be a drug addict. I have never been more angry and would like that mans remarks removed and I would like to know who he thinks he is and where he got his information from? Disgusting!!!
Really Matt Did he funny i'm His brother and didn't even know that. a junior firefighter and already got a lot to say believe me when i say your deparatment will be hearing from me get your facts straight before saying stuff that doesn't concern you and isn't true .... i suggest you take the negative comments down
Sincerely HIS BROTHER
