Carmella was a dedicated and loyal member of the Fraternal Order of the EAGLES. She will be sadly missed. She is now in heaven with Tom. May the Lord keep them in the palm of his hand. Rest in Peace..

So sorry to hear this news, I've known her my whole life, our property. Our backyard faced her. She was always there with a big hello and a great conversation when ever I saw her. May she rest in peace 🙏
