Happy Birthday Carmie !

Surprise!  I’m sending a special Happy Birthday and Happy Mother’s Day note to my dear friend Carmie Talarico.

This is a picture of her and  her best friend, my mother-in-law Mary Arnone, in their hey day.

I don’t know the exact year but it was some time in the late forties.   Carmie is the second from the left with Mary on her right.  This group of girlfriends would get all dressed up and go to the clubs in the area.  This was taken at the  Town Casino in Buffalo, New York.

The Town Casino

Carmie was not only my mother-in-law’s long time best friend , she has also been a wonderful  person in my life since I was a little girl.

Her daughter Cathy and I were friends.  Every time I went to their house she made me feel so special.  She still makes me feel that way every time I talk to her.

I thought she was one of the most beautiful women I’d ever seen.  I still think the same and so much more.  She is such a sweetheart and one of the strongest women I know.

Today she’ll be celebrating  mother’s day and her birthday with her lovely family.

Mother’s day wishes to Cathy and Kristin and Happy Birthday to Tessie, who shares Carmie’s birthday today.  And love to all the rest.

Carmie, we love you and are so grateful to have you in our lives.

Happy Birthday “Sarah”!

With Love,

Debi, Michael, Nick and Alex

    What an amazing gift you’ve given Carmie here, Debi! She is just gorgeous. She and Mary were the best of friends, and I love seeing photos of how much fun they had together.

    You are so special to share this with everyone — to have an interest not in just people, but in documenting their mark on this world is a beautiful thing. I wish you a terrific Mother’s Day!

    Much love,
