Re: “Obituary: Dave “Big D” Fayette, 1945-2016

Fred and Family, I'm so sorry for your loss of your brother. I hung around with Dave, Joe Lynch, and Tom Rivers for about a year after high school and before I joined the Navy. We used to play "two hand touch" football on the Edmond's front lawn - right across the street from the Lynch house. We used to have very interesting philosophical discussions about finance and emotional entanglements. Dave was a really good guy. I wish I could have spent more time with him, but somewhere along the way we lost touch with each other. I remember one time he was going to teach me how to drive, but the night before we all had gone to the A&W for quarts of root beer. The quart container at the time was in the shape of a megaphone, so we cut the bottom out of one and pulled off the road, turned the lights out and waited for some poor unsuspecting car and driver to drive by. When a car did come by, Dave turned on his lights, pulled out and I used the megaphone to make a siren sound and pull the car over; then, thinking we were so clever, we drove off laughing. But we weren't so clever after all, because the driver took down the licence plate number and contacted your father. Your dad wouldn't let Dave take the car for a month, that ended Dave's plan to teach me to drive. I don't remember seeing much of Dave after that. I hope it wasn't because your dad came to the conclusion that I was an evil influence on him. Dave was one in a million ... no, Dave was one in 300 Million.

To the family of the late Dave Fayette (aka Mr.Dave), my heart and prayers are with you all. Mr. Dave was a very nice and giving person. My sister was one if his "Savannah Kids". He blessed my sister and our family with our very own personal computer and introduced us to the world of technology. My family and I will always and forever be greatful for Mr. Dave.

Today you would have been 71 .. Oh, Mr. Dave.. I can barely type, let alone think of you, without crying.. I am so glad that God allowed you into my life.. You were a great man!! A girl could only wish for a father, a goddad, made like you. I have so much that I want to say.. & I will. But, for now, Happy Birthday my Angel! I will forever love & cherish every memory of you. Forever in my heart. Forever missed... Rest on.

Re: “Obituary: David R. Park, III, MD, 1961-2016

David was a fan of the N-Zones, loved skiing the north country slopes and was a proud alum of "Cow Valley Union High School" as it was known by those big city Burlington kids.
He often said he thought the Burlington-area and Seattle were the two best places to live in the whole country.
I think a lot of who he was came from the vibe in Williston: low-key, progressive, earthy and civil.

Re: “Obituary: David Budbill, 1940-2016

He will be remembered by any that made human contact; many that will posthumously know him through others and his writings; any that love Thomas Merton, will see his reflection. Blessed Be...

Re: “Obituary: Docie Woodard, 1948-2016

So very sorry to see this. My heart goes out to you, Linda. May it be some comfort to know that your old friends love you think of you still. Docie's kindness and strength were legend in Vermont.

Re: “Obituary: Alexandra B. Severance, 1946-2016

Alexandra was an inspiring teacher and a great friend. She taught all of us some of the multiple ways we could appreciate people from many different cultures, happily participating in an international community. Some of our male office colleagues (you know who you are!) were a bit slow in appreciating all the wonderful international foods as Alexandra warmed up her lunches in the microwave, but they gradually learned the names of multiple varieties of delicious spices. We will always remember you, Alexandra, with love and appreciation. Martha Warner

Re: “Obituary: Docie Woodard, 1948-2016

I was deeply saddened to learn just a few hours ago of the death of Docie Woodard. For a few years in the 1980s, Docie and I co-led an effort to help men convicted of battering their partners or wives lay down their violence in behalf of their intimate partners, their children, their relationship and their own humanity. I recall we worked with about 100 men on a group basis during that time, during which I got to know Docie as the marvelous, creative and empathetic professional her friends and colleagues had long known in the Burlington area. In our work, which was important and difficult, Docie had a major impact on all the men present, including me. I learned a lot from her and wrote about our experience in my 2014 book, “To Care Enough.”

I offer my condolences to everyone who knew, cared about and loved Docie. She was a treasure.

Re: “Obituary: Jan N Slusmon, 1947-2016

I knew Jan for a brief time, but the peace & love that he brought to intense situations was remarkable. It made quite an impression on me personally for my service work & work life. It was due to his dedication that I took some action to improve my life on another level. Much peace love & prayers to his family at this time. But know I will be forever grateful for knowing him. May we all carry his spirit with us. Much love Elaine H

Re: “Obituary: Alexandra B. Severance, 1946-2016

Alexandra added so much joy as well as laughter to our office interactions, making our teacher lunch times fun. I was one of the lucky teachers to be with her and many others who also appreciated her unique style. My wish for her children and all other close relatives and friends is that PEACE will arrive soon, to join their feelings of LOVE.

Re: “Obituary: Julianne Holland

Julianne knew about the poison laced vaccines, HAARP, the dangers of wifi and cell towers before almost anyone I knew. She was brilliant and savvy. She made a video for people in the future who will fight the devastation of cancer. She gave the gift of her experience;her triumphs and mistakes to the world with the latest research and therapies to conquer cancer!
