Tom Meo

$23,048 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 545 people in 21 months
Created July 15, 2017


Friends of Melissa Fratanduono have set up this go-fund-me site to help with expenses due to the immediate loss of her son Thomas Meo, who was tragically taken from this world at just twenty-one years old. 

By now you have probably all heard the story, but beneath every headline and behind every conversation within the community and throughout the nation, is a family left in utter devastation.  A greiving mother and young sisters, extended family and friends, all rocked and shattered by this sudden and senseless outcome.

Please take a moment to search your soul, and identfy for a moment if you can, with the suffering of those left in the wake of this unspeakable sadness.  Please... help donate today, as soon as possible, whatever you can, to help the family.  His family urgently needs your support and blessings!

Just wanted to take a quick moment to thank everyone again for their generosity, kind words, thoughtfulness, and prayers. It means more than you will ever know.

Over 125,000 people visited this site, so many posted well wishes and offered sympathies and condolences. It is really quite amazing.

Best of all, many shared stories about Tom, and really brought to life, some great and wonderful memories of him!

Thank you all so very much for the outpouring of love and support!

Update: We are over halfway to our goal, with almost 3,700 Shares! Wow!

Melissa and family are so thankful and grateful for the outpouring of support in the way of kind words and donations from friends, acquaintances, and total strangers all across the region and country. Thank you!!!

One thing that often gets forgotten or never discussed in situations like this, are the real world stories behind the person and family.

Tom was a responsible young man, holding down a 40+ hour a week job in construction and also pulling double shifts at the local gas station. With Melissa being a single mother of three, Tom helped his mother and two younger sisters financially, and took on a lot of the "man of the house" responsibilities. Never taking "no" for an answer, when he volunteered to help out. They now will surely be struggling, not only with the emotional void this tragedy has created in their lives, but also with the loss of his helpful hands.

Please consider donating today, or at least share this story if it moves you to do so.

Thank you all for your help and support!!!
