It was a long journey filled with many ups and downs. Wish we spent more of it on the same page. There were difficult times but there are also happy memories and you certainly lived life to the fullest and on your own terms. Sending love and wishing you peace.

When my wife and I bought our house in Jersey City, Carmine was one of the first people I met. Although we had never lived here before, my family - like Carmine's - came up in Jersey City, and hearing Carmine's stories about life in the Marion helped deepen my connection to this place.

Rest in peace, Carmine. Thank you for your friendship.
