CARL RUSSO PHOTOS: The 95 days Rich Romano spent hospitalized with COVID-19 are blurred in his memory by a mixture of heavy sedation and paralytic drugs.

Likely to be etched more permanently is this week’s homecoming celebration, described by his wife, Jill Romano, as nothing short of miraculous.

Family and friends participated in a parade on Tuesday, April 27 including the North Andover fire and police departments. Dozens of vehicles with welcome home signs passed by the Romano's home to celebrate his homecoming. 4/27/2021
