Carmen was a great friend. We will miss him. I first met Carmen when he worked behind the counter at the course in Alloway. Even on a Sunday, I would walk in, hand him a cigar and ask when we could tee off. "You're next" Carmen would say. One day he wasn't there and I asked for him. I was given his phone number in Myrtle Beach and that is how our friendship began. Godspeed Carmen!!

Aunt Concetta (Carmen mom) and my grandpa Harry were brother and sister . Carmen was always sweet and always made me laugh. Growing up in Illinois, I always came to Bridgeton, New Jersey 3-4 times a year and was always at Aunt Concettas house on Cumberland Ave. Never forgot his smile. So many memories.

Lisa and Lori,
Deepest sympathies for the loss of your Dad. I remember the great times hanging out in the basement of your house on Orillia drive. Your Dad made the best wine! But we weren’t supposed to know that. Haha!
The parents of Orillia Drive are all getting together in heaven now. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
