Earlier in the month, the blogging community lost one of its legends--Joe Spado aka Spadoman who wrote at Round Circle. This is a link to his last post on Nov. 22, 2013. He is greatly missed.
I knew Joe only from blogging but many of the people who write at Rebecca Brooks site Recuerda mi Corazon knew him personally. Totally synchronistically, I tripped across a favorite 2010 Joe post about buying his wife a Our Lady of Guadalupe dress in Bakersfield while doing a Google search on Guadalupe fabrics. I simply had to link it here because looking back on his generous spirit. I remember this post so distinctly from 2010. In fact, I'm going to repost it here, not just link it.

Isn't she beautiful
We are all thinking about you, Joe, and your wife and family and all your friends. I especially remember you today on the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I hope your wife is wearing that beautiful dress you bought her long ago in Bakersfield.
