I was saddened to hear of Mr. Romanelli's passing. I have such fond thoughts and memories of my years living upstairs at
109 Maplewood Avenue! It was particularly meaningful to experience my Italian heritage by living with wonderful people who brought Italy to America. I was sad that current circumstances led me to feel it would be best not to attend the wake; I assure you that Antonio and all of his family are in my heart at this time. With sympathy and care, Gary Cesca
