    Tina, Joe,
    There is an emptiness at Bayview now that I feel intensely. Your mom’s spunk and energy were inspirational. I will never be able to hear ‘That’s Amore’ sung by Dean Martin without thinking of Carmela and hearing her sing along. She is deeply missed. My sympathies and thoughts are with you all!
