  1. I am so sorry for your loss— I am sure there are no words to express the grief you and your family must feel after so many recent losses of loved ones.

  2. Carol, We don’t even know where to begin to help you heal. Your pain is beyond anything we can imagine. Please accept our most deepest sympathies. Prayers for support and healing. All our love. Tom and Gale

  3. Dear old friend, the world is not nearly as bright and wonderful without you in it. Your heart was always big and caring beyond measure… maybe too much so for this world. Everyone you loved you loved deeply and passionately. You cared about people in tough situations, animals, social injustice, and the environment. You lived your life as a feminist and an ally – truly caring about people for who they were inside. My most vivid memory of you was sitting on the couch in that little apartment in Chicago (Irving Park?) and stating that the best lesson you learned in life was “Keep the women happy.” And you meant it in the sweetest way, for all the women in your life not just romantic partners.
    You genuinely enjoyed making people happy and would never hurt anyone intentionally. Your heart was so feeling and full of caring for others that this world was probably too harsh and cruel for it at times. You never stopped being an advocate for music and art and those who pursued it. The joy and expression of creativity was always encouraged and appreciated enthusiastically to everyone around you. No one in your presence ever felt ridiculous or judged. Your kindness and generosity of spirit were always present.
    You live on in our hearts, in your beautiful son, in the Cubs, in the music, in the Blues, in laughter, and in love.
    Rest in peace and laugh with the Angels Jeff.
