So sorry to read this, Carmen. Thinking of you and your family.


I am so sorry and God's Blessings to you all....


She truly loved you so so very much. You two really were the odd couple. Polar opposites but meant to be together nonetheless. I'm so happy that she had such an amazing friend and confidant in you, Aunt Carmen. You loved her, nurtured her, and protected her until the very end and I am eternally grateful.


Still thinking of all of you, and so very sorry. Don't worry about the emails, text messages, and phone calls, people understand.

You take care and I will be praying for you and your family. ((HUGS))


On the morning my mom died I had a dream that mom, her best friend, and I were together giggling and having a wonderful time. Then I awoke to the phone ringing with news she had passed (I wasn't with her because I was in undergrad and my attending classes & graduating was extremely important to mom). With the news, I returned home to make arrangements, and at some point mom's dear friend came to visit. We quickly discovered we had pretty much identical dreams that morning.

I'm so sorry for your loss but I'm so happy for you that you had this experience - it will help carry you knowing she's okay. I know you have faith - this is a bonus.

Again, my sincerest condolences to your family.


I'm so sorry to hear about your family's loss. I'm glad you're allowing yourself to have that time away from the computer and texts. Take the time you need for this, and don't let anyone else tell you how you should be handling your time and emotions.

That's heartbreaking Carmen, I'm so sorry. May she rest in peace.
A friend of mine, a lovely person who is only 42yrs old, a mother to 2 boys is riddled with cancer. Its so fecking sad.


Continued thoughts and prayers going out to your family. hugs too!


Thinking of you this week...


May her soul dwell with the Blessed. And may He who created her in His Image, give you His peace, comfort and love.


Praying for you and your family. Praying that the Lord will grant your family peace during this time.


Carmen, give yourself a pass, people understand. I hope the week goes well for you and I will keep you in my thoughts!


I am so sorry for your loss. Family comes first! So glad she had you during the past year.

Keeping you in my thoughts.....


i am so sorry.


Truly sorry for your loss Carmen.We will be here when you get back. Take time with your family and loved ones.


Hugs and peace to you, Carmen.


Sincere condolences, my friend.


I am new here, but what a time to discover you! And what a blessing for you to have that experience at the time that she passed.

I hate cancer too. I lost a dear friend to breast cancer 6 years ago. I still think about almost daily, for some reason or another. I still wish she was here.

Virtual hugs to you.


So sorry to hear of your family's earthly loss. So hard. I know. Mush comfort to you and your family at this time.

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
