Our Angel Wing Contest Week 5 Winner

Congratulations Kathy Cupo

I have many Angels in my life, but the one's that I am writing about is my first Angel, my Son Nicholas.  Nicholas was born on 1/22/1989, he came into the world in the normal way and from there, my life changed.  He was my firstborn, and with him all my hopes and dreams came true.  As I waited for his first cry, his first breath, I knew something was wrong.  They whisked him to the special nursery without me getting to see or hold him.  He was diagnosed with a chromosome disorder called Trisomy 13.  Most babies diagnosed with this disorder, only live a few minutes when born.  We were fortunate to have him for 13 days.  I lived years in those 13 days.  I held him, talked to him,  sang to him and took him through an entire lifetime in those 13 days.  I will never forget the joy that he brought into my life, nor the pain and sorrow I felt when he died.  He would have been 21 this past January and the joy and pain are still with me every day.  I was blessed t…

Congratulations Anne Carlucci!

Hi!  The Angel in my life is my eighty one year old mother. She has weather quite a emotional storm in her life. My mother lost her husband of thirty five years at the age of sixty three. Just one year after retiring and moving to their dream life of a large condo overlooking the North Carolina coast. My mother stayed on alone and made the best of her situation with none of her kids living nearby. She always tried to comfort us after we lost our loving Father,with little thought to herself. She was the special needs brownie leader in our town. She always emphasized to us to help others for the good of bettering your self by just being a good person. She eventually moved back for financial and health reasons,to be near her children.Now back in Jersey she still felt the need to have her independence and lived a a senior single family home. My brother Kevin her second son was nearby to help with various projects and chores around the house.The house became …

Congratulations  Kurt E. Reinheimer

The angel in my life is my wife of 13 years.  After our first born child was diagnosed with autism she never complained or whined about the misfortune.  She simply has done everything in her powers over the past 11 years to help our little girl become the best and brightest she could ever hope to be.  When the house of our dreams suddenly burned down on 6/22/10 and she lost all of her possessions (except myself and the 2 children) due to my act of neglect, she never complained or whined about the misfortune.  She simply has done everything in her powers to get our life and family back on its feet.  When my wife's family disowned her due to her marriage to me 13 years ago, she never whined or complained.  She simply has made my life the best any man could ever hope for.  She is an angel, a saint and my best friend.  She tirelessly works for others with no care of her own desires.  It would mean the world to me for you to choose my wife and best f…

Our Angel Wing Contest Week 2 Winner

Congratulations Lorraine Russo !

It is not hard to describe my angel because of who she was.  Caring, helpful, selfless and loving. Alice Helble cared more about others then she did herself.  Many times in my life I witnessed her kindness to others.  At Thanksgiving she had an ecumenical table.  People of any race, creed or color were welcomed at her table and she never had a bad word to say about anyone.  More then anything else Alice taught me how to live my life as a true caring person through her kindness and love.  As she lay dying she still had her list out for Starfish to see if she could help others who needed a ride to a doctor or any appointment. I know now that Alice is still with me because of the example of her life.  It left an indelible mark on my life that will never be forgotten.  Her recent loss has left a physical void in my life and the life of all who knew her.  But her spirit, the true sign of an angel lives on in all of us.

Her winning story:

My angel is my ten year old daughter Juliette.  She is the most mature, responsible, sweet and beautiful little girl.  Last year my husband, her Daddy past away from a long battle with Brain Cancer.  She was Daddy's little girl.  Sandwiched between 2 wild boys she has a tough time getting any Mommy time.  She often helps do things for her little brother while I have things to accomplish.  She will read to him, make him scrambled eggs when he is hungry, work on his homework with him and spends time with him on the computer too.  She is a straight A student, that always gets up and gets herself to school on time. She is quite accomplished at gymnastics and is becoming a hard working athlete as well.  There are times when she really needs me for something and I have my hands full with other things.  She is quite patient and accepting of our circumstances and works hard to find a ways to do whatever it is by herself.  I would l…

November's Birthstone- The Citrine

This birthstone’s name comes from the French word for lemon, “citron”. It is the most abundant mineral, and signifies light-heartedness. One often wears citrine to have more happiness enter their lives. Some also call it the “jewel of the sun”. Citrine is a variety of quartz ranging in colors of yellow, yellow-brown, orange, dark orange-brown, reddish-brown. Citrine crystals can form together with amethyst or smoky quartz to form a bi-colored quartz called ametrine. Citrine is believed to help the heart, kidney, digestive tract, liver and muscles. It promotes creativity, helps personal clarity and eliminates self-destructive tendencies.
