  1. Rest in Peace Mr Macaluso. You are leaving a remarkable legacy…your family: Especially two people I have come to admire, Paula and Steven.
    You have raised a blessing of a daughter, Paula, and she has raised a very caring and devoted son, Steven.
    God’s peace be with your family at this time.
    Brenda and Rick Masek

  2. With love to my four cousins, Terri, Paula, David and Mark. How much I loved Uncle A.D. goes without saying. He played a large part in my life as a child and an adult. He was a wonderful uncle to us and a loving, very caring brother to my mother.

    Paula, I know you spoke to him at the end and what you said reminded me… When Mother died this poem brought comfort with it as I could visualize and feel her leaving us as she was gathered into loving arms that went before. What a party we’ll have when we’re all together again some day.

    I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side,
    spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts
    for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength.
    I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck
    of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.

    Then, someone at my side says, “There, she is gone.”

    Gone where?

    Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast,
    hull and spar as she was when she left my side.
    And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.
    Her diminished size is in me — not in her.

    And, just at the moment when someone says, “There, she is gone,”
    there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices
    ready to take up the glad shout, “Here she comes!”

    And that is dying…
