Carol: Please accept my sympathy for your loss. I only met her on several occasions, but each time she was charming and gracious.
Carol, I work now for the Arkansas Supreme Court (and have done for many years): from time to time, I encounter your mother's good works here. I shared her obituary last week with several of my current co-workers who also worked with your mother (and I mentioned to them that you and I were in school together). Of course, they did remember Mrs Calliotte fondly - here's one response: "I was amazed when I saw her the 1st time due to her name -- I had expected her to be a man. She was one of the nicest people in the building and always well dressed. I am glad she lived a very long and successful life. I am sure her daughter is extremely proud." I also contacted your mother once, several years ago, when the Arkansas Association of Women Lawyers planned an event to honor its senior members (including her) - she was gracious and very helpful to the event planners. My condolences to you and your family. Take care.
Our sympathy in the loss of your mother. My Mother, Marjorie Duncan, thought the world of Mrs. Calliotte. She enjoyed being in the St. Luke Sunday School class with her and having her teach the class. I remember her as a sweet, gentle,smart, classy Southern lady. Mother will be 97 this summer and is in an Assisted Living Center in Maumelle and is doing pretty well.

Carol and Jim,
I was so fond of Aunt Clyde and I admired her very much. She was so accomplished while also being a genteel Southern Lady....and so pretty! My best to both of you and to your families.
Carol, so sorry to hear about your mom. She was a lovely lady, and I remember she always looked out for me after games. God bless you and your family.
