Josie, my deepest condolances on the loss of your loving husband - you were a team. Carmen was such a gentleman strong of mind and spirit and willing to share with so many. I am certain he is punching angels in the arm as we speak. Love.

Unfortunately I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Carmen (his beautiful granddaughter, Kelly is my boss), but I wish that I had. From what I've heard, it sounds like he was a pretty remarkable man. My heart goes out to all of his family and friends. So sorry for your loss. God Bless...

I enjoyed meeting Carmen and Josie in Wilkes Barre, Pa. at a dinner. It was a pleasure to be in his company. I remember the the fights sponsored by Gillette and Pabst Blue Ribbon as a young boy and meeting Carmen made it all the more special. Carmmen was a quite the MAN
and it was a pleasure to be in his company. God bless him and his family.
