from Mary Dacey

Melicent was my "Momma Mel"!!! She took me through Fundamentals of the Faith on Wednesdays nights at her apartment in Venice. She cooked "tsimis"...that was our treat, but not every week! We shared the same birthday, too, January 22nd! Ah, what a lady. She made dozens of sandwiches for my father's memorial service and always had a smile on her face. I met Melicent over 28 years ago when she and my friend, Dee, took me to Grace Church. Melicent led Dee to the Lord who in turn led me to the Lord. I remember I had asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior about 2 weeks prior but hadn't yet gone to church. We went to this huge church, the biggest I had ever seen, and when the pastor (John MacArthur) spoke, I thought "who is this man and how does he know all about me!" WOW! I could go on and on but for now I'll stop. I love you Momma Mel and I can't wait to see you in heaven. We can have tsimis, perfect tsimis! love, Mary D. (that's what she called me)...Mary Dacey
