JBLOGGER: Stagnaro, Melissa (MC1997) blogs about her Dad



Daddy’s Little Girl: What I’ve learned since losing my dad
by The Accidental Blonde on February 10, 2014

*** begin quote ***

This weekend, a post reminded me that today was a somber anniversary for three siblings I call friends. You see, two years ago, they lost their dad.

Frederick L. Stagnaro (a.k.a. Fred, Roy, Uncle Fred, Gramps, the Pops, Freddy, Fred-o…)
My dad, Frederick L. Stagnaro (a.k.a. Fred, Roy, Uncle Fred, Gramps, Dad, the Pops, Freddy, Fred-o…)

Truth was, I didn’t need to be reminded. I’ll never forget the death of their dad, because he died just two weeks after my father. In my heart, their grief is inexorably linked with mine.

This may seem odd, particularly given the fact that we’ve been more acquaintances than friends for most of our lives. I didn’t really know their dad; they didn’t really know mine. But now we share this bond; a bond formed out of the pain of losing one of the most important people in our lives. For we had each stood by, helpless, as the men who had been our heroes our whole lives passed from our world into the next.

My dad fought a courageous three-year battle with cancer. They were three incredibly difficult years. In the end, I knew it was his time. He was in so much pain, and I didn’t want to see him suffer any longer.

Losing him tore my heart out. And I knew I would never, ever be the same. Don’t get me wrong, I put one foot in front of the other. Life hasn’t stopped, but it’s as if my personal history is now broken into two distinct parts: before my dad died and after.

JOY: Morrissey, Jim (MC1997) reports that Carbonaro, Krystyn Meyers [MC1998] had a baby girl with some help from Carbonaro, Rich [MC1997]


I wanted to pass on some great news. Another Jasper baby was born in the last couple of weeks:
Krystyn (Meyers-’98) and Rich Carbonaro (BS-’97, ME-’99, currently a part-time Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MC) welcomed Camryn Shea on July 11. Coincidentally, this date was also Krystyn and Rich’s 10-year wedding anniversary. What a birthday present!

Camryn, their third child (daughter Carleigh is 9 years old, and son Hayden will be 6 in September) was 8 pounds and 15 ounces at birth.

[JR: Unfortunately, newspapers are dying entity in the USA. They've failed the American Sheeple and Clovers. And, worse, they have failed to adapt to the inet. I hope that Jasper Sean lands on his financial feet. Unfortunately, there's no budget for a Jasper Jottings Sports reporter. I'd hire him in a heartbeat. ]

After offering plans for Bronx Catholic schools to stay open, parents nervously await Archdiocese’s decision
Eight schools in borough are in danger of closure


FRIDAY, JANUARY 4, 2013, 6:00 AM

*** begin quote ***

The Rev. Joseph Franco, who oversees the Northwest/South Bronx region for the Archdiocese of New York, will be put to the test in his first major decision as chair of the new board.

“I would love to see all the schools come off the chopping block, because we’re in the poorest congressional district here in the United States,” said Franco, of Sacred Heart parish in Highbridge, which is not in danger. “I don’t look forward to the final decision day.”

Some believe a verdict has already been reached.

“(The archdiocese) is not interested in helping schools,” said Kelvin Ramirez, an alum of St. Jerome’s whose son also attends.

“They’re interested in giving the illusion that there’s an option. Personally, I don’t feel very confident that they’re going to change their minds.”

[JR: Hopefully, our fellow Jasper can demonstrate that it's a fair process. Catholic Education is a lot like the Titanic; it's going under. You can NOT compete with something the Government gives away "free". This battle was lot eons ago when the Gooferment got into the "education" biz. Which is another way of saying putting the State in place of God and indoctrinating the future voters so they can't conceive of being free. Argh!]
