Memories Timeline


  1. Tony, Linda, Vince and families. I am so very sorry to hear of Carmella’s passing away. She was so special to me, she considered me one of her own kids, and I loved her also. I loved all the times I spend giving her haircuts and just visiting with her. We want you to know that you are all in our hearts and in our prayers. Just know that she is finally at peace with the Lord. Love, Kathy & Karl
