October 31, 2019

hi Carole,

Thinking of you, and all the times we'd run out the morning after Halloween and buy up the on sale candy! Crazy times!!!!

Third-grader William is glad we are not tagging along this year, because last year we slowed him down!

Democratic House today voted 232 to 196 setting rules for impeachment ... proceedings ... against Trump. You would love it!!! You with your huge, jubilant brown eyes.

)October 19, 2019


I opened this old computer before your day, the October 19 when you left us, maybe hoping for something enlightening.

You, your smile.

Your breath...

You, with me always.

"...And the sunlight clasped the earth
And the moonbeams kissed the sea..."

With Danny in Key West, sun-drenched or evening-hued ..

Petals of roses kissing the sea from all of us.

Oh Carole...bereft-ness abounds

October 4, 2019: Niece Piece

Hello my sister,

Apparently a crying and grief stricken Joy is in Key West looking for your former house to place flowers... a spiritual connection...

It has taken her 17 years to howl ...

Labor Day 2019

Hi Carole,

Your Dr. Marmesh D.V.M. came into our lives, the vet you adored, who took care of your pets...Danny got Curt there with greyhound Britney, she cutting her foot/toe while the crew was putting up storm shutters... Sam, Joshua, Danny and friend Chris. How grand of all to show up, I was stunned!

Shutters for Hurricane barreling close bu, missing us, decimating the Bahamas: Abaco with winds of 180 the charts holding there for next 36 hours, speed 8 miles per hour. 913 milibars, huge eye. (As of 11 am Sunday. Sept 1, 2019)

Our vet closed Saturday afternoon, Curt and Danny first went to animal hospital; both got bad vibes, Danny remembered vet in the Grove... in they went — Danny parking at his place after dropping Curt and dog parking, super scarce... and walking back.

Short story, pooch treated, bandaged, tested, hook worm meds, antibiotics, penicillin shot and pills for home, fee affordable, a gift .. unheard of.... we so worried and concerned...

A miracle.

Mother's Day, 2019.

Surrounded by you, on the mantle, at college, age 19. And overhead. Embedded.

I had surgery, allergic to the iodine, who knew? Beet red and itchy.  Could not wear the abdomen truss for a few days, doing now outside tee and nightgown, sure hope going without did not harm.

Also in today's NYT: Shirley Branner died May 9. She was 90. Real estate broker, indexer, librarian. No services planned. Kindly remember The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund and the Society of Architectural Historians.

Passover 2019

Miguel and William

Was grand with grandsons, first time reciting and reading together. We  skimmed through the Peach Haggadah, made it to the plagues and four questions, grape juice and wine ... then on to Celeste's undercooked carrots, my burned basket and Josh's sensational Key Lime pie.
