Posted by Janine on Jun 6th, 2011Yesterday we bid farewell to a phenomenal human being. She touched the lives of so many, more often than not in the same way. She was giving of everything. To those who knew her you loved her and to those who did not have the fortune of meeting her you may be better off for you too would be mourning. A son and daughter lost a mother, 5 grandchildren lost a grandmother who constantly showered them with love and perhaps gave them the greatest gifts of all, the ability to speak your mind, love your family and give of yourself everyday. To her 9 great-grandchildren, Gina, Nicholas, Lucas, Julia, Maddie, Sophie, Gabriella, Marina and Jack, I only wish you all could have spent more time with her. You need to know she loved you with ALL her heart. Her life lessons were one that your parents will instill in you for the rest of your lives. So long Carmela, Mom, Grandma and GGMA. The love I had for you could not be measured. Love and Hugs, Grandchild #5
