Saying Goodbye

I arrived back home after more than a week attending family matters. Just checking in. I'll be in and out as the days roll by and I get my bearings. Thanks for your patience.

Carmelina Rosa Spado Skalicky (nee) Caruso

May she rest in peace.

Peace to all

May G-d comfort you and yours....

Oh, I am so sorry.
It's hard to lose a parent--at any age. Great-grandmother to 8...what a blessing to know that.

I'm so glad you had the opportunities in the past while to spend time and just be with her. It's comforting to know you're that loved.

Please take care of you. And I'm truly sorry to hear about the loss.
Sending more hugs and more peace....

Spadoman said...

Thanks Mel, I need the hugs. Thanks.

Oh Spadoman, I'm so sorry to read about your loss. I love the photograph of her and I remember well the stories you've told. It was a blessing you were able to be with her.
I too send you good wishes for peace and hope of a glorious meeting.

susan.. Thanks very much for your thoughts. I appreciate it. Years ago I never would have been able to stand at her bedside. I am so glad she waited for a time when I was able to do so. I'm sure some of my own healing came from her prayers for me. Thanks.

planetcity1.. Thank you very much. I appreciate the thoughts and the hug.

Peace to all.

Oh, Joe. I'm so sorry about your Momma. Her smile is lovely, and I know your heart hurts to lose her. My thoughts are with you.

Joe...I too am glad you were able to spend the time with her.

Shelly... Thank you for stopping by and for the kind thoughts. Even though Mom battled a sever illness, it is a hard task to say goodbye to a love done. I appreciate the words.

Katherine... At the funeral, they kept calling her Carmen. Many friends knew her as that, but her name is Carmelina. It literally means little Carmen. I love her full name, Carmelina Rosa Caruso. Thanks so much for your condolence. I appreciate it greatly.

Peace to all
