  1. To the Patelidas family:

    I remember the Carrelli family when I lived across the street in Biltmore. Although times were rough back then, I still have pleasant memories of those days long ago.

    I just want everyone to know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Joe we are so sorry for your loss. if you need us for anything during the tough times ahead let us know. we love you bunches.

  3. Agnes and her family lived close by my family in Biltmore. Agnes and Dorothy, and her Mother and Father were close friends. Her Father made the best spaghetti, and they often invited me to have dinner on that ‘spaghetti night’. So very sorry to hear about her passing. Love to Dot.

  4. I have known Agnes since the first grade. She was always considered a friend, was sweet and her family and friends will certainly miss her. But she will never be forgotten. RIP Agnes.

  5. My deepest sympathy to you, Joe, and the family. Agnes was such a sweet person and I know she will be missed.She had a good life.
