Obituary Condolences

Carolyn Parker Please Keep Carolyn Parker in the Light. I am very sad to share with you from Solentiname Nicaragua that Carolyn passed on at 5:25 p.m. Wednesday, March 14, 2012. Carolyn Parker was my companion in life, and partner in BattenKill Canoe Ltd. She was suddenly and dramatically taken ill in the morning. I was with her the whole day along with many close friends; the nurse was here, but she died in my arms surrounded by friends. In local tradition, friends and the community stayed with us from that moment on through the night. Many folks I did not know, but they wanted to be with her. Friends brought food and the men built a beautiful casket. We had a community service at 3 p.m.; she was buried at 5:15 Thursday and then we had a fiesta to celebrate her life. We lit a fire when she died, paused by the fire before burial, and we will keep her flame going for ten days. On Sunday March 25, at 3pm we will gather together to plant a garden in her memory. A memorial fund is being established in her legacy. Please visit www.solentiname.org for more information.
