January 2008 - Caridad Nieblas on her last day at Westland Mall

Westland Mall, Hialeah, Florida

My buddy Cari's last day working at the customer service desk at Westland Mall. She's moving on to full time employment with Comcast up in Miramar. She's a good kid, a junior at FIU and everyone liked her so we wish her well.

Very good on becoming a case manager/social worker. I hope you are happy with your chosen profession and what you do to help people out. I was afraid that Tom passed away but I didn't know for sure. He was a great guy and a great piano tuner but he had a corny sense of humor with his hand drawn cartoons that he used to pass out from time to time. Rest In Peace Tom, it was great knowing you. I'm doing pretty good, Cary, and count my blessings for my health and for beating cancer with a 7-hour operation back in 2012 followed by 6 weeks of radiation treatments 5 days a week at the U of M Sylvester Cancer Center. The docs now say it won't come back after this long. How about posing for an updated photo at Westland some day at your convenience? Cell phones have much better cameras these days and I have one with a really good camera now. I need an updated photo of you. Thanks!

Heyyyy Don, I became a case manager/social worker actually :) and Awww Mayor of Westland Mall. Found that article a few days ago, then did a little digging and yes, he passed away. I believe it was February of 2015. Anytime I go to the mall I find myself looking for him. He was one of my favorite people. He used to randomly call me. How have you been?

Hey Cari (or Cary), you're a blast from the past! Did you become a teacher like you mentioned in your post of 28-APR-2008? I think Tom "Mayor of Westland Mall" Gonnella passed away but I don't know for sure. I think about him sometimes when I'm at the mall. I haven't seen him for years either and I go to the mall every night to walk. Maybe he only goes at lunch time or early afternoon; I don't know but he was getting up there in years. We paid him to tune our piano every year and he was really good at it but he hasn't done it in years. He used to call me at home from time to time just to talk and he hasn't called in a long time and we have the same phone number. I hope you are doing great - tell me what you've been up to.

Hiiiiiii :) I came across this photo again. I hope all is well. I love all the great photos and memories here. I am wondering if you remember Thomas Gonnella. He was in the herald once (Mayor of Westland Mall). He was always such a good buddy of mine. I still look for him in the food court anytime I go to the mall, but I haven't seen him in years.

The full time hours were too stressful, so I found a job that required less hours but paid the same. So it's going well. I miss everyone there, too. Finally decided to become a teacher, though.

We still miss you at the Westland counter! How's the new job? Thanks for posting.

Hey Don,

This is Cary (Caridad). I finally found it up here on the site. Cool.
I hope you're doing great.
