      The picture of this Lady is of Maria Dalli, my Mom when she was young… To me, she was “The best Mom in the World”. (For so many reasons).

    I am dedicating this Presentation to my Mom… (God bless her)

    This Presentation is about When and How the idea of FUNTASEA came to me…

    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I am having a rough time writing this presentation due to personal emotions… OK… here goes…

    Back in the Sixties my Mom was getting old and she was ill; suffered many heart attacks… she was rather frail!

    This was a difficult time for me and my older Sister Clorinda, because we loved our Mom and we wanted what we thought was best for our Mom… so together we decided to take our Mom to a Nursing home…

    What a big mistake that was…

    I went to see my Mom the following day and I still remember her words to me; my Mom was born in Malta, hence in Maltese she said to me:  “Louis, if you love me, get me out of here”.

    While I was at the Nursing Home, one of the Nurses took me aside and asked me if I had arranged for my Mother’s Funeral? Can you imagine how I felt? I took my Mom at this Nursing Home thinking that she would be better off so as to get better, not to die!

    To make this portion of my Story short, I demanded my Mother’s release and I took my Mom home the very same day…

    The above scenario is what prompted the idea of  FUNTASEA…

    From my own experience I know that when people get old, they do not want to be a burden to their Children and at the same time, the Children of Seniors do not want to see their Parents in any Nursing Home; it is depressing…

    As you know, there is an old saying, “Need is the Mother of Invention”

    From the Day I had brought my Mom back home from the Nursing Home, I started thinking of a possible solution to make things better not just for Seniors but for their Children as well… (Keep in mind that no loving Child wants to see his or her Mom or Dad in a sad environment).

    It took me a while, but slowly I wrote the FUNTASEA Presentation…

    FUNTASEA is not the answer for all Seniors, however, if  FUNTASEA comes to be, many Seniors and their Children would benefit from such a Development.

    I wish you well…

    Dalli
