    Dear Marilyn and family, we are so sorry for your loss. Deane and I always love spending time with our friends (Mike and Marilyn) when we are in Wilmington. We are so thankful that we were able to spend one last precious time together with Mike a couple of weeks ago. We all sat on our balcony and enjoyed the view and had a great time just being together. Mike loved going out to eat and I loved joking with him because he was always the first in line rapidly walking to the restaurant with the rest of us trailing behind. We all had so much fun at the Waterway pool. Mike and our daughter(Ashleigh) share the same birthday which is pretty special. We love and miss you Mike, but we know you are in God’s hands now. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Palato family. Love, Deane and Cathy DiPaulo
