Re: “Obituary: Stella Sławin Penzer, 1921-2018

For some people, great suffering engenders great love. Stella was one such soul. To have been loved by her is a blessing.

Encourage your children to study history. If they do, they will see that almost all the wars ever fought have created suffering for both losers and winners and that many of of those wars have been prolific in spawning additional wars. People can learn enough to know when their lives are at stake. That is so often what they are told and so rarely the truth.

Re: “Obituary: Eric Woodman Rozendaal, 1967-2018

A neighbor and friend in the Intervale. A neighbor and friend on our farms in Starksboro and Hinesburg. A neighbor and friend at the farmers market. A terrible loss for all of us in the food/agricultural community and the broader communities that he touched and made more wonderful all around the world.

Re: “Obituary: Eric Woodman Rozendaal, 1967-2018

So heartbroken hearing this news. Words can't convey well enough our love and condolences to Eric's family. I had the good fortune of sitting next to Eric last year at Tuttle Middle School to talk to the students about the cross-cultural experiences of the Peace Corps. Eric is one of the few PC volunteers that I have known who returned to his home landscape and applied what he learned, brought back a lot of wisdom and ability, and maintained close contact, still spoke the language he learned, was passionate about the experience as it shaped his path and he knew it and he was there, taking time off from his farm, to encourage the middle school students to embrace the world, to be intellectually curious, to go out and learn about other people in the world because you will find common humanity, and to expect surprises. He was a good guy with a big heart and our community is better because of his life here. Love and peace and healing to you all, dear friends.

I am so sorry to hear of this. I knew and loved Zachary in his teenage years when he hung out with "Crusty". She joins her brother now and may peace be with her and Zach.

Re: “Obituary: Kate Nicholson, 1982-2018

Thank you Marsha, for the tribute to Kate and the Buddhist chant. Kate was so very brave in facing and fighting her disease, often alone. Despite all her problems, she often had a sunny smile and a positive, optimistic spirit. She was a very hard worker. She liked to garden, recycle and heat with wood and she cared passionately about global warming, pollution and corruption in government.

I was deeply saddened to hear of her passing.

I hope and pray she is in a better place.

Re: “Obituary: Frederick Grant Hill, 1935-2018, South Burlington

Oh No Fred.. I did not even know you were sick...
You and Sandy Milens were my photo heroes when I first came to town as a preschool teacher in 1971 and taught your son, Tristram, at the Children's school, here in Burlington. I was fascinated as you put 17 lights or more or less on one ski boot, from Rossignol. took polaroids and used a huge 4x5 camera for a product shot.
My favorite time with you was when you got that marvelous 270 degree camera, with a lens like the eye of a cow, and took a huge group photo of the citizens of Burlington on the south side of City hall like the photo taken 100 years before that. Sen Leahy, being tall, is right in the middle of the photo. My friends and I snuck in on the far left, after I tried to help you get all of the people into place, and in the view! I treasure that photo today, as it hangs on my wall. I am still using my cameras professionally...and somewhere in my collection is a family portrait of Tristram and his young family. Peace my good friend. Thank you for all the advice and friendship you gave to me. And if someone from your family is reading this...please tell me when the memorial service is.
my best Carolyn Bates
