  • Dear Sandella Family… We are so saddened to hear this tragic news of your mom’s sudden passing!! I met your mom when my oldest child and Jeanna were students at Clintonville School and I would always see her smiling face at Stop and Shop! She was a wonderful woman with a very big heart but I will always remember her smiling!! It was nice to see her and the family again when her grandson Mike attended St Frances Cabrini Preschool where I am the secretary! Our sincere and heartfelt condolences to you all! May God bless you all with the strength to endure the difficult days ahead and may you all find peace in your treasured and cherished memories and may the love and support of friends and family bring you some comfort!!
    Our thoughts and prayers will be with you all during this very sad time!

    Just know I’ll never forget you Joanne
    This isn’t really goodbye

  • Just heard from a former sorority sister of ours that Joanne passed away. I always saw in Stop and Shop when I came back to CT to visit. I was saddened to hear the news.

  • For the one love of my life; my heart is hurting so badly since you left. My life will never be the same. You always knew when I needed guidance. I miss you more than you will ever know. My love for you is endless and we will be together again some day. With all my heart, I LOVE YOU.

    • Fred, I am so sorry about Joanne…she was a sweetheart and I loved our conversations about our home, Connecticut..she was so looking forward to the upcoming events in your family there…you both lucky to have had that love for each other..she will truly be missed.

  • Mommy, I’m still trying to process this right now. You didn’t deserve this at all! I just want you to be here with us right now, laughing and smiling and just being YOU! Thank you for welcoming Sal into your life! He loves and misses you. The smile on your face when I told you we are pregnant, absolutely priceless!! Please watch over us, guide us. Help daddy and give him strength. He needs it! We all do! You’ll be walking me down the aisle when I get married in 2 months and you’ll be by my side when the baby is born ❤️ I love you and miss you mom ❤️ Your memory will live on forever ❤️

  • Dearest Jess and family, I’m so beyond sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a very special and sweet person. I’m sending my deepest condolences and prayers of peace during this extremely sad time. May your memories soothe your heart.

  • Mommy, this seems so unreal. Our hearts are so broken. I keep thinking I’m going to wake up from this nightmare. You should be here smiling and laughing with us, getting ready for a bridal shower, and a wedding, and a baby on the way. This is so unbelievably unfair. Lou and the boys miss you terribly, as do I. A piece of me feels like it is missing. Watch over us and guide us and give us the strength to get through this. Daddy needs your guidance and strength more than any of us. He is in so much pain, but trying his hardest to accept everything. We love you. We miss you. You will always live on in our memories and our hearts and walk beside us through our lives. We will never forget you 💔

  • My deepest sympathies and condolences to you and your family on the loss of your mother.
