When I was a little child, my father used to shop exclusively in Dearborn, Michigan. One store I vividly remember is Manno's clothing. I have always had a soft spot for the "nice gentleman" that treated me with the utmost respect when I was a child. That nice gentleman was Mr. Pat Manno.
In keeping with our Podcast and Video channel's theme, "Leave a Legacy, Not Debt", next Monday on July 29th we will have the pleasure of featuring Pat and his son Anthony. Our media channels features conversations that make end-of-life planning and preparation easy, engaging and calming. The soft spoken and warming personality of both Pat and Anthony will certainly fit right in.
Pat and Anthony graciously accepted our offer to be guests on our podcast. For me, it will be a little big of nostalgia, a little bit of boyhood memories and also a way to re-live some of the memories with my father, who passed in 2006.
Pat (2nd generation) and Anthony (3rd generation) will share their incredible story about humble beginnings. How hard work, dedication and commitment prevailed in a vibrant example of living the american dream. Stories of days gone past where their salesman and tailors would wander up and down Michigan avenueduring the heyday of Ford Motor Company - I CAN'T WAIT!
What to wear to a funeral? After nearly 50 years of experience helping assisting people dress properly to pay respects to loved ones that pass, Pat and Anthony will share with us the modern trends for funeral attire as well as the evolution of funeral attire over time.
What is the proper attire for a loved one's viewing? Leading up to this podcast, the #1 question (by far) people have asked me is what does Mr. Manno recommend for attire when for a loved one's viewing and when they are laid to rest. Pat and Anthony will unlock some of their stories and provide professional recommendations for that exact question.
I kindly invite you to watch the video below. For me, it's amazing to think that Anthony (28 years old) was not even a thought when I used to frequent Manno's clothing as a child with my father. I watch this video and it reminds me so much of the experience when I was younger. Anthony is a true professional, well spoken, very calming and makes me want to go buy a new suit everytime I watch this - The Manno family must be proud!
