So sorry to read about Antonetta's passing. My sincere sympathy goes out to you and her entire family. I went into Romano's website for another death and noticed Antonetta's obituary. I am a distant cousin of Antonetta's and have fond memories of her and her parents growing up. In fact, we also met as teenagers when you were marrying Antonetta. Once again, my sincere condolences to you and your family.

My deepest sympathy to Richard and your family. I am going to miss my sister and best friend so much. Can't believe you left us too soon. She was always generous and wonderful to me. She was always there when I needed her. I always looked forward to go up to RI and stay at the campground. Going to miss all that and all the many phone she made everyday. Hope you are with mom, dad and Jerry. Give them hugs and kisses from me. You will always be in my heart forever. Love your one and only sister Anna. RIP

Dear Rich an family,
Rich an I r so sorry for your loss! So many great memories from the campground. Antoinnette was always so kind to us when we first arrived at the campsite next to theirs. Always willing to lend a helping hand just being such a warm an friendly neighbor. She was so very thoughtful of everyone. The year I had my knee replacement she knit me yellow an white pot holders for my camper. I will cherish them forever. We are gonna miss not seeing her this year but she will be with us all in spirit.
Prayers to you an you family at this time. Again we are sorry for your loss. God Bless you all. ❤️
