Dear Re, Tommy, Carla and Kenny:

Sorry I was not able to attend the funeral services and/or wake. We just got back from Aruba. I am so sorry that Carlo has passed away. I remember oh, so many memories of him with my dad and mother. They will all be reunited again, and breaking eachothers chops up there. If there is anything I can do, please do not hesitate to ask. Carla, I love you to death, you will always be my one and only maid of honor and I will never forget that!!! Love you all - Shirley and Dan
