    Dear Family, 

    On behalf of my mother Helen and our entire family, I wish to express our sorrow in hearing of your mom, Carmela's passing. As she was my God-mother, I particularly remember her as energetic, adventurous and not afraid to explore. She was a lovely woman, who will be missed by many, especially our mother. 

    Our best and God bless you all during this sad time.
