Melanie said, “My brother-in-law, Anthony Gerard Ciccone, passed out of this earthly plane last evening. I have known him since I was 15 years old now, in the spring of our lives in Michigan.
He said, “As Brother Dave Henry has noted here, Anthony was a complex character; And god knows: we tangled in the moments, as true brothers can. But I loved her, and understood her better than I was sometimes willing to let go.”
Henry had some revealing words… “Trouble abounds,” he said, “but the family can still live in tact.”
Henry went on… “Farewell, Brother Anthony. I want to think that the God in whom your blessed mother (and mine) believed is out there, waiting to receive you. At least for today. For, no one will distract me from this sight.
Madonna and other family members were separated from Anthony. He battled alcohol addiction for years and was homeless several times… sometimes living under a bridge. He criticized Madonna and other family members for allegedly not caring about him.
Anthony told the Daily Mail years ago… “I’m a void in their eyes – a non-person. I’m an embarrassment. If I freeze to death, my family probably knows about it for six months Won’t do or won’t care.”
For Madonna, he had harsher words… “I never loved him, he never loved me. We never loved each other.”
Anthony was 66.
