Hi I hope everyone is always safe and well. My name is Casandra Marchiano and I sincerely need assistance. I lost my Dad, Anthony "Dino" Marchiano suddenly Jan. 14th 2021 My Dad was always my hero, mentor, and confidant. He was an exceptional man and truly my Best Friend. My Dad respected and helped others, even if he had to go without. My Dad had a traditional, natural, caring, charm, and I proudly carry on his name and all he taught me. From childhood to adult hood we were always there for each other. The photo you see is when he won a "Father of the Year" contest I entered and he was so honored, I was so elated to make him feel so special. My Dad created memories and traditions that live in my mind and heart forever! He taught me so much about life, love, strength, respect and how the little things matter most! I am my Fathers Daughter. We shared a beautiful Christmas together, made plans for 2021 and a few weeks later, I lost him. I will Never be the same. He shows me incredible signs he is still with me, my Guardian Angel! (Dad, I love and Miss you so much!) I was injured, by no fault of my own in 2018. The persons responsible for hurting me were never brought to justice. My Dad was by my side every single day, and he kept assuring me my justice is my getting well, a promise I will keep. My Dad always said to me "Casandra, baby, you love life so much" and I would say "Dad I got that from you!"
A little bike, to this day, leans up against a tree in the back yard where my Dad and I first taught my daughter how to ride a bike, he never wanted it moved, the photo he carried in his wallet, he loved his family so much. She is 32 now and along with my Mom, who passed 14 years ago, a beautiful woman inside and out, my Dad, her Grandfather and Godfather meant the world to her. I respectfully need help saving my family home. A home where generations of love, respect, traditions, lessons learned, memories and so much more fill every room. I have so many photo books. I can't lose this home, its all I have left of my history, my family, MY DAD. I want to honor and make my Dad proud by keeping the lifetime of generations etc. alive, this is not just a house; its my "Home" its all I am and more to become. I want to help and respect the people and community there, good people who are so kind and love us. I was, along with my Dad, struggling to maintain our home. I need financial help to save our home, I can't do it alone. I have a sister, who sadly was never close to us no matter how hard we tried and has hurt us in ways I will not make public, but when needed we were always there for her. I will always wish her well, however, she is estranged and only interested in selling the home, not preserving our precious family home and forcing me to buy her out and maintain it alone. I am going without to keep this home safe and maintained. The devastation I face every second of every day without my Dad, let alone losing this cherished home is tragic and heartbreaking. I am sorry for anyone who is facing the same heartache. If you would be so kind as to donate to me to save my home, I will forever be thankful and always keep you in my thoughts and if some day I can offer more to each and every person, I give my word I will. I am an honest person and will account for every donation. I thank you for reading, any and all help and wish each and every person in this world hope and safety always.
