She was a child in Lenette’s group in the early fifties. She remained with us through Purple Sage and well into Camp Shasta as a counselor with her group of girls. An outstanding student, she became an elementary school teacher and advanced into dealing with troubled children. She is a mother of two very successful adults too. On top of that, she is a tremendous caregiver to Lenette and me. The old saying applies. “What goes around eventually comes around.”
At Camp Shasta, there were girl groups and boys’ groups, and as would be expected, relationships at camp sometime became relationships for life. She and a “guy” counselor found something in each other that meant more than good relations. After camp, they went their own way, each growing into beautiful adults with their own families and spouses.
As life would have it, and we never know what that will be, serendipitous events played their card. It took the death of a spouse, divorce for the other, and a much later reunion of campers and staff where they met again, and the sparks they once had for each other reignited. They are together again and convey incredible love, regard, and respect for each other. Being with them at this period in their life is a joy and is felt by those who are with them. We love the feelings they convey for each other.
They have entered a phase of life where having a loving companion is truly a blessing.
We met years ago—Nothing in between exists—But then it happens
She came as a child—became a teacher and Mom—We love her dearly
She gives of herself—Selfless to all in her life—Special, our Merry
