Our deepest sympathies to the whole family. We were Carmine's neighbors for a long time and know how he loved family and how important it was to him. We enjoyed talking with him about his garden and how he liked to work in it, especially taking care of his fig tree. You're all in our thoughts and prayers. Bob and Geri Strifling

Dear Gina, Franca, Fred, Anthony & families accept our deepest sympathies on the loss of your loved one. I just heard about it from my mom. We called him Carminuzzo from when we were neighbors in the little town of Marano Principato. I was a little girl when they came to America. I was was crying and sad they were leaving. With his gentle and kind face, he looked at me and said "he would sent me a doll." And, surely...he did. I never forgotten. Love & prayers. Maria Scaramella & Family

Suzy Savaglio and Family.
