Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Sandy and family. My heart goes out to you and your family. I wish I could be there to express my sympathy in person. I know how devastating it is to have a family member get Alzheimer's because as I told you my mother suffered with it as well. I hope that wonderful and warm memories full your heart. I am a volunteer for the Alzheimer's Association and I will give an extra donation to my team effort in Frank's name as we walk this October. Our goal is to raise $700,000 in San Diego. We have to beat this disease so our children and our grandchildren do not have to see loved ones suffer. My sympathy to you in your loss, Live Diana

Sandy, Scot and Jeannie: Great memories of Mr. Marsella especially from our high school days of hanging out with Scot and friends. We had fun times on the raft that was stored at Mr .Marsella's business for the WNAP White River Raft race! Scot has great parents and both Sandy and Frank were wonderful to Scot's friends! I am praying for your family during this difficult time.

Dear Sandy, Jennifer and Scot - I am sorry to hear of Frank's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. I have such fond memories of Frank, especially at the Indianapolis 500, where we were lucky to sit in his great seats, at Butler games and at the PGA tournament a few years ago when we all hung out. He was a wonderful man who will be missed very much. Sincerely, Kelly Kappes
