Dearest Gagliano Family
Our deepest Sincere Condolences go out to the whole Gagliano Family that may God wrap his arms around you and the entire family and give you peace. We love you all and so blessed to have known Uncle Carlos.
When we heard Uncle Carlos final departure from this world, there was silence in the air, and the reality of that moment time stood still. Uncle Carlos was a beautiful and loving person that will always be in our heart memories because of the many love felt years that he was a part of our family. We will never forget him and his words of wisdom, which is a trait that God placed in him; it's another excellent reason to remember him as an example of Christ. Yes, he will be missed by us. Still, we know he has joined with the Father in Heaven. He is walking with Christ in his new home in paradise, and on that one day for those of us who stand by faith will also see Uncle Carlos again on that glorious day where there will be no more pain, no more sorrow, or the issues that this world brings, but in the love of Christ forever and ever.

When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure. May you treasure all your memories of Carlos. Hugs,
We will always cherish the fond memories we have shared over the many years. We will love the many pictures from all the family reunions and Christmas eve celebrations we shared as a family together.
Words can’t say enough, know that we also mourn with you and pray for strength through this painful loss of Uncle Carlos as we understood Him, he was a great man who has left this earth but will forever be in our hearts. Know that our thoughts are with you, Aunt Brenda, and your family at this time of your sorrowful time, we are here for you if you need anything.

As I'm sitting here quietly thinking about how we felt about all of us as friends and family and the memories we made and then trying to write out what Carlo meant to me and my family and then to Tammy and her family. This becomes an impossible task. Having known Carlo in and around town, on the Fab Yards, and at St. Andrews dealing with those thoughts of friendship and fellowship is quite hard.

I will miss him coming in to the office and asking what we are doing at Dad's for the weekend. He was smiling and had a great heart. He will be missed by all. Prayers for you all.

Miss Me, But Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little but not too long,
And not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared.
Miss me...but let me go.
For this is a journey that we all must take,
And each must go alone.
It's all a part of the master plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know,
And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds,
Miss me...but let me go.

This poem is mostly a message for Carlo's family and friends, but the last line especially reminded me of Carlo (and Brenda) and how they are always doing good deeds. I know Carlo has a place in Heaven waiting for him. I hope he will be Julie's neighbor again so they can talk about old times and watch down on everyone they love. Peace and love be with him and the family.
So sorry we couldn't make the services. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
