  1. Carmen was such a wonderful person to have known. He had a fantastic disposition, he could bring people together with purpose to improve a situations with ease. He made everyone he came incontact with feel they had his full attention. What a wonderful caring person.
    Thank you for sharing your dad with the Colombo Club for so many years.
    God Bless all of you.

  2. Dear Rizzo Family,

    May we extend our sincere sympathy on the passing of Carmen and Mary.

    We met Carmen in 1996 when he called on us to do the Anniversary Flowers for the Colombo Club. A smile from the heart and a thank you had us hooked on a very social and sweet guy. He had us coming back again in “97.

    We’ll see you again some day Carmen, in the meantime, do what you do best, ” a twinkle in the eye and a big smile from the heart”.

    Carmen will be misssed by everyone who met him. He was a role model for all of us with his smile and his kind words. My prayers go out to him, his wife and his family…
