    Carmine and I weren’t close but I considered him a good friend an a good neighbor. He was very supportive of me in the last year, calling or texting regularly. I will miss talking with him.
    What a very nice guy.

    Carmine had a large heart and was a special man. Alex was very honored and thankful to have met him before he passed and greatly enjoyed his company. We will miss his Witt, big heart and of course amazing cooking. Rose we love you very much. I always looked up to you both as a wonderful couple of love and friendship. He will always be your love and friend in spirit. I bet he is up there playing checkers with Jesus learning new moves ❤️
