Mikey was a two year old boy who loved cars, daddy's tools, rode his tractor around the house, when he heard Arthur on the T.V. he would sit and giggle, always wanted to be with his big sister Peanut, and when we could not find our keys we could count on Mikey playing with them.
Mikey was diagnosed with brain cancer December 1997. We met so many Wonderful people who helped in so many ways. Family support was always there, Papa, Susan, Gerri, Carol and Tammy would take turns cooking a meal, ice cream night with Aunt Peg, friends stopped by to help in anyway. People we never knew took the time to show they cared and lend a helping hand, and Nana always brings coffee and chit chatter she is...., and a faithful 7:45 am call from Grandma. Poppy would be patient when Daddy would come in late and leave early. Love never seemed to go away.
Mikey lost his battle with cancer April 1998. Proceeds from Mickey's Fund go toward the Tomorrow Fund, Roger Williams Medical Center, Meeting Street School, Ronald McDonald House, and many more organizations to help with the race against cancer.
We thank everyone for supporting the Michael Marfeo Jr. Fund. It takes people like you to make a miracle happen for someone else.
Love and Prayers to everyone.

A bud and the Gardener gave us,a pure and lovely child. He gave it our keeping, to cherish and undefiled. But just as it was opening, to the glory of the day, down came the Heavenly Gardener, and took our bud away.
O sweet little angel pray for us and through thy prayers intercede to the Sacred Heart of Jesus that through His burning heart of love He may lead us through this life and help us overcome the temptations which may befall us.
"Sweet Jesus, I implore that I may love Thee more and more.
My Jesus, for Thee I live; My Jesus for Thee I die;
My Jesus I am thine in life and death."
Michael P. Marfeo, Jr
"Watch and wait for us, Dear Mikey
when this day of life has fled,
We shall be again united
where no farewell tears are shed."
Sent with love, kisses, & many hugs,
Mom, Dad, Peanut Jessica, & your little brother Joseph Michael.

I write this prayer to God for all who help out in many ways. Words cannot express what your support means to my family. Your kindness and generosity has made it possible for us to help others who may be in need through many donations in Mickey's memory. Each one of you are truly blessed by God's grace.
Thank you for all that you are and all that you do. Thank you God for always sending me the help and support of others to share in Your grace. I am so thankful for what You send me. Everyone needs Your hand and please hold all our hands for Your strength, love, and forgiveness. Always shine the light in our darkness for You are our God, we look up to You.
