Cheryl, Sean, and families, we offer our deepest and heartfelt sympathy. Joe and I will miss our dear friend, who had a heart of gold, and always had so many kind words and did so many good deeds. He loved his family and friends so much.. How I will miss our talks especially on days when he would sit in front of the McCabe home and catch a few rays of sunlight, tell us stories and have lots of laughs. We would all set up our chairs and gather round him. He was like the godfather and we admired and respected him. So many years, so many memories, far too many to write at this moment. We were blessed to have known him for so many years and thank Cheryl and family for sharing him with us. Carmine is now with his beloved wife, brother and friends. Connie has been waiting for you with open arms. You definitely earned your wings, now rest in peace. Will never ever forget you and you have a very special place in our hearts.

With all of our love,
Charlene and Joe
