  1. I do not mean any disrespect to any mourning families,
    but I want to give credit where it is due.
    Mike Mercogliano had a first wife Dora, 3 Children
    Michael Jr., Diane and Phyllis and a Brother Ralph and
    Sister Rose, all of which were very instrumental in
    building this empire.
    Mike got the money to start this business from his
    parents and he and his first family turned it into a
    Gold Mine. Michael, Jr. and Phyllis passed away last
    year 6 months apart, his daughter Diane, Brother
    Ralph & Sister Rose are living in Boston & outside of
    the Boston Area. All of these people worked like Dogs
    to make it successful, and how do I know, I was there and
    witnessed it all. Mike’s mother use to give me food to
    bring to the store so the family could eat in the back while
    trying to operate this business. There are alot of people
    in this neighborhood that know the true story, but I just
    had to give credit where it was truly due.
