    We are going to miss our Aunt Carmela so very much. We feel so blessed that we could have seen her and Virginia last weekend what a gift to see her and spend time with her before she had to leave us. We love you and will miss you Aunt Carm! The stories you've left us to share with everyone you will never be forgotten. Xo

    Worked with Carmella at The Star. She was one in a million. Recently ran into Carmella as she rang cowbells during the ST. Xavier University football games where her son Mike is the coach. Ring those bells in heaven Carmella!
