Marella family remembers its ‘angel’

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

On behalf of all the Marella family, we are so grateful for the outpouring of love and affection for our precious daughter, Dana, who lost her battle with Niemann-Pick type C disease on July 12.

The impact she had on so many was truly evident by the overwhelming presence of people both at the wake on July 15 and at her funeral on July 16.

Dana’s love of life and her strong will, even through her struggles over the years, were such an inspiration to all who knew her. Her beautiful smile and her tender touch will never be forgotten.

Right now, we have holes in our hearts that cannot even begin to mend as we have watched over Dana for almost 20 years. But now, she will watch over us and we feel comfort knowing that she will always be our guardian angel. Dana brought such joy in her short life, more joy than most can bring in a lifetime. We are all so blessed to have loved her.

Thank you all for being there to support our family.
