  1. Dear Family of Joel Marchanti — I am deeply sorry for your loss. In the early 1980s, I met Joel when he was managing the K-Mart Auto shop in Randallstown. He was smart, hard-working, dependable, kind, honest, and funny — and until I moved away, my family and I always took our cars to him because we trusted him unquestionably. Joel will live on in the memories and hearts of those of us fortunate enough to have known him. Zikhrono livrakha. Peace be upon him.

  2. Gina dear and family – Bill and I are so sorry for the loss of your dad. We have been friends for over 50 years. This was so unexpected and sad. We wish you and your family comfort and peace. My heart goes out to your Mom. Maybe it is a blessing she isn’t fully aware of the loss. You are in our hearts and prayers. Sending love and healing hugs.
