Fresa Family,

I'm sorry to read about the loss of your loved one Carmine. Death is like a thief that takes away our loved ones. Or due to old age and sickness, we loose that precious quality of life that leads to death. The Bible says that God has the Peace that excel all thought and guard the heart. May that Peace be with your family in your time of grief. May you find comfort from thes bible verses at Rev.21:1-5 and Psm 37:29. Many happy memories of Carmine be with you.

My Sincere Condolences
