“Marianne captures the feelings of a parent going through the unimaginable outliving their child. She puts into words what my wife, Reve, and I call trying to describe a color one has never seen before. It is a must-read for people finding themselves walking in those shoes. It is unnatural and every parent's worst nightmare. But you do survive, as Marianne so eloquently conveys in her book, Sharing My Stones” -John Walsh, Creator of America's Most Wanted
Sharing My Stones is about the untimely death of her seventeen-year-old son in a drunk-driving crash and the excruciating trudge to go on. Meet Matt, delight in his one of a kind personality and in his ability to pack a lifetime of adventure into his short existence. With courage, strength, and grace, Angelillo takes us on her family's difficult journey and ultimately shows us the transforming power of grief, love and faith.
Sharing My Stones is a provocative insight into the epidemic of underage drunk driving. Anyone who has a teenager will read this book and immediately pass it on to their son or daughter. Sharing My Stones will become required reading for educators and traffic safety advocates. I could not put down this poignant account of a distinctly American tragedy. —Denis Foley Curator of Lewis Henry Morgan Institute-SUNY-IT and NY STOP-DWI Coordinator-Albany County
Marianne’s inspiring story shows the benefits of facing the pain of grief. The bereaved will recognize the roller coaster of emotions that she and her family experienced. Her determination that something positive would come from her son’s tragic death is shown by her efforts to educate youth, parents, and school personnel on the dangers of drinking and driving. This is a message for us all, and I wish I had had this book in my hands when my daughter was killed by a drunk driver in 1977. Sharing My Stones is a message of hope, a tribute to Matthew, and a road map for all bereaved. —Therese S. Schoeneck Founder/Executive Director HOPE for Bereaved, Inc.
Marianne Angelillo gives a compelling, straight-from the-heart glimpse of what happens to a family in the wake of a tragedy. This book should be required reading for every parent—and for anyone who has ever thought there is no hope for a better tomorrow. —Hart Seely Author, Journalist
Thank you to Marianne Angelillo and her family for having the strength and courage to share their journey of love and loss, and to put their story into words. As parents and educators, if you truly love your children, teenagers, and students, you can’t afford not to read this book. —Joseph A. Rotella Superintendent of Schools and Parent Onondaga Central School District
