Carmela "Millie" Russo
May 20, 1914 - Sept. 16, 2010

We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday and days before that too. We think of you in silence and often speak your name. All we have are memories, your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake with which we'll never part, God has you in his keeping We have you in our hearts. Forever missed by loving daughter Rita Rose Puccio and your entire family.
