The O'Neil girls remember spending quality time at the Vallo home in St. Henry. Mr and Mrs Vallo were such wonderful people. They always welcomed all the neighborhood kids in. Mr Vallo loved to sing and tease us girls. Later in years every time we would see the Vallos in Tipp City with Steve, they always remembered us. Great memories for a great family. Prayers are with your family. The O'Neil Girls - Mary Ann, Rene, Mickey and Margaret (Peg)

I'm so saddened to hear of Uncle Mel's passing. I'm also grateful that our families were able to get together recently. I have fond memories of hearing your family sing together and how Mel especially enjoyed doing it. What a wonderful man.

We both fondly remember Mel, or as we called him, Mr. Vallo. We loved his pride in his family, his love for his wife, and his passion for music. The evidence of his excellent work as a father is visible in our friend, Joe, Mel's son.
Great life well lived, serving others.
