Dear Uncle Carl, You always greeted us with such warmth and enthusiasm whenever we saw you. You'd always ask about my family in California and send your best wishes to them whenever we would leave Ohio to go back home to the west coast. I appreciated how you'd make the effort to come by to visit when we were in town. We will deeply miss your kind smile, your warmth and generous spirit. We will miss you Uncle Carl.

Dear Uncle Carl: The "baby" of the Costanzo Family. How I will miss all the stories you shared with me about you growing up, especially the way you'd drive Mom (Angie Desmone) crazy until she threatened to strangle you, and then you'd tell her you were going to pick your nose to start your "famous" nose bleeds so Grandma would end up screaming at Mom instead of you! Another one of my "favorites" from you is when I asked what class you enjoyed most when you were in high school, and your response was: "Photography. I got to spend all my time in the dark room with the pretty girls." I am most grateful to you for showing me the real "meaning" of love through the way you lived your life on a daily basis: being kind, compassionate, and always willing to help someone in need; devoting yourself to taking care of Aunt Millie, especially after her stroke; spending quality time with your children (Rose and Frank), so they'd know how much you love them/they'd learn your morals and values; and, never forgetting the importance of your older siblings in your life by always assisting them and participating in our family functions. I will never forget you because you gave me a "lifetime" of wonderful memories that hold a very special place in my heart. Love you "loads" and always will. Terry
