Remembering Marsha.... Strong, Vibrant, Intelligent, Caring and Beautiful.

This memorial website was created to honor Marsha Antonelli.  Please feel free to share your thoughts and feelings of Marsha

 

 

I wish to thank each and every one of you who sent cards and flowers.  It is impossible to write to everyone, the number of cards is overwhelming and the flowers to Marsha and me were unbelievable in their beauty.  Needless-to-say, it is extremely difficult being without Marsha, but many of you have been gracious in your comments and deeds and have lessened the grief ever so slighly, but meaningfully.

My sincerest thank you to you all.

John
