“The torchbearers torch in town“
Every time you saw my husband Mario you sang “My sweet embraceable you. “You sang it in many of our anniversary parties and at the weddings of our daughters. But the most touching thing I ever saw is when you went to say a final goodbye to Mario as we were leaving the funeral home you serenaded him with the same embraceable song. Thanks for the memories Carm

My condolences to you and your family. Carmella was one of a kind.I can still hear her yell over to my moms “Hey Mar! Is that your truck? when I would park in her space out front. She always had some good stories to tell. RIP Carm.
