Cuz Carmela,
I'm glad we spoke a couple weeks ago but am sorry it would be our last. You really had a good understanding as to the issues your body was facing and still managed to enjoy our moment and a few laughs. We all feel we have more time here than we really do. Seeing you resting today for your new life in heaven. I will see you again.

Rest in peace sweet cousin <3 I remember when you came to the U.S. to live and I met you, that we were so excited that we were the same age! I have wonderful memories of you and your loving family. Bill and I send everyone prayers and love.

Love you dear cousin! RIP You will be missed. Your love and our memories will live on forever. I remember the day you came to NJ so exciting to welcome my Italian cousins to the USA. We have so many beautiful memories. You are in my heart forever. You and Tele had something so special and beautiful. I'm so sorry for all and send my love thoughts and prayers.
