Re: “Obituary: Ruth Wolf Page, 1921-2016

Friends and family of Ruth- I relocated to VT this summer from PA. I never had the pleasure of meeting Ruth, but my bowl of soup sat atop my copy of seven days, & noticed her photo. I work in the hospital and I tend to read obituaries often. After reading this beautiful tribute, I have to say that I she gives me hope and empowers me to see myself and all of the people who I come close to through the next few years and beyond. I am so inspired by the life she lived, and i feel it was no mistake I stumbled upon her brilliant story when I did. Thank you for everything you worked for, Ruth.

Thank you for presenting Ruth's life to us, much like her home, in "the sweep of Lake Champlain, the distant blue of the Adirondacks, the breeze that often blew". She refreshed refreshed us all, as learned from her walk.

Re: “Obituary: Ruth Wolf Page, 1921-2016

Ruth Page was an outstanding mentor for every woman who worked with her in her many endeavors. Once, she was my roommate at a national food and gardening conference in Philadelphia (when we were both working at Gardens for All). She scoffed at taking the elevator and would walk the seven floors to our room. She would always drink an 8 ounce glass of water upon awakening. That, and the stair-climbing kept her going for many good and thoughtful years. RIP, Ruth Page

Re: “Obituary: Horace Soule Jr., 1923-2016

Al Soule was a great man. Like his longtime friend artist Robert M. Fisher, he did what was right regardless of political or economic considerations. Although he is and will be sorely missed, he remains an inspiration for how to live a good and inspiring life, for those whose lives he touched. My condolences to his family and friends for his loss.

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.

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

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: Dave “Big D” Fayette, 1945-2016

I just feel like my heart was torn into a million pieces.. & I dont know what it will take to put it back together. Mr. Dave was my friend. I am so hurt & so saddened by this news. When we last spoke, I got to tell him thank you & that I love him. But, it doesn't hurt any less. I miss my friend.. My condolences.

With tears,
Misty

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.
