Dear Maria and Family:

I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad and Pop. I really am going to miss seeing him at your house after all these years. I am going to miss his warm smile, kissing him on his check and giving him that little hug. He was my little boyfriend---and I am going to miss him! Rest in peace Mr. Carretta...until we meet again. xo
