Le Méridien Philadelphia Celebrates Renovation with Speakeasy Party

Good Monday. Wow the vacation of a lifetime is over. It was a wonderful experience, I’ll tell you about it tomorrow or Wednesday. While I was away the worse thing you could imagine happened, and I found out a day after it happened as my cell service was off for most of the trip, my beloved Uncle Carmen was in a traffic accident right in front of his farm, and Saturday, after I got home, he passed away.  He lived a great life, to an awesome age of 84. He was a great guy, I always enjoyed our visits. He was a tell it like it is, jokester, fun and in love with my Aunt Mary. They were about to celebrate thier 64th wedding anniversary in a few weeks. … RIP Carmen Visalli
