Remembrances

  1. Cipriana Carrasco was my Grandmother and Friend.

    As many have mentioned, she lead with a firm hand and a limitless amount of love in her heart, displayed her “Way”. As my Cousin JR Peeples reminded us all, even with a simple “I Love You Grandma” – It was met with a simple “Me Too” in perfect English. This from a woman who refused to speak english, and understood english very well.

    Life is a Fragile series of choices, all mounting to what we refer to as our existence on the planet during this time.

    I cherish the foundation and mindset that she had, always creating something out of nothing, and seeing the vision all while maintaining her virtues and standards in an ever growing world.

    Her light will carry on in story and in spirit, many times having the room be filled from her actions, comments, and looks of disgust, all of which were for a laugh.

    Light and Love – Constantly Expanding

  2. Ralph, Joe and Sophe we send our deepest condolences and prayers to all of you during this most difficult time. Corney really loved the time he spent with his Tio Joe and Tia Cipriana when visiting you all in Delhi over the years. Your mother was a very welcoming and kindhearted person. We will continue to pray for you and your families. God Bless!

  3. My Tia Cipriana will alwaysbe in our hearts and minds she is lived by my family And I enjoyed our time we spent together on January 5th when we stopped to see her for 2 hours my heart and prayers go out to my Carrasco family love you all

  4. My Tia was such a special soul, she always told it like it was and made you laugh just by the way you said things. I remember how she use to scold my dad when he wouldn’t listen to reason or was being stubborn. Then they would both just laugh about it She will truly be missed but I know she is sitting happily in a beautiful bright garden filled with butterflies and hummingbirds right next to my dad and Tia Simona laughing and telling stories.
