MY NETTER

When carol arrived may 25, over 2 hours late for the ladies reunion at our home in Seabrook, SC, she was upbeat and ready to live life to the fullest. She arrived at 12:30 am with a beautiful smile and was ready to go!!!!!! The next day we went crabbing, and I can still see [...]

Winning for BRay’s Mom!

Astilbes

June 18, 2011 In our frontyard in Scarsdale we have a magnificent row of Astilbes.  Astilbes are the most beautiful of all the flowers in our yard.  They are perennials, and bloom in spectacular, bedazzling fashion each year around mid-June.  They bloom for only a short time, but make up in color and zest what [...]

Walking the High Trestle Trail

My memories of Carol are that she was warm, friendly, and so welcoming whenever I would come for a visit. And I remember her making the best homemade applesauce on the planet. We had it at a Thanksgiving Dinner I attended a long time ago. Hearing she had died took my breath away because I [...]

A JAR OF JELLY

I was saddened to hear of Carols passing. She was someone special and always a good friend. She was an asset member of the California Association of Judgment Professionals and gave her best when needed. Every time I saw her at a meeting, she always had a jar of homemade jam or jelly for me. [...]

Finishing Well…

I was privileged to work with Carol on an important family issue only 4 weeks ago. Her eagerness and compassion permeated the entire discussion. Where she was uncertain, she humbly sought clarification wanting to insure that the best care was shared with others. I remember having to share some difficult truths and she weathered, even [...]

Wing Span

Carol and I have danced side by side for more than a decade at the Y. Over the years I managed to nail all the steps and movements, but never the graceful flow. I shared my frustration with Carol between songs one day. She said “Leslie, you and I are tall. We have long limbs. [...]

Under the Oak Tree

The first time I met Brooke Ray’s mom, she was sitting under an oak tree watching a group of us from our office play ultimate frisbee. She had a serene quality about her that is hard to describe, and her smile was heartwarming. She was just so happy to be sitting there in the shade [...]
