2018 Carol Levasseur Memorial Scholarship Awarded to two TOPS arts students at SCVTHS – Courier News Article – July 19, 2018

Blessings to these two young women as they go off to college to study nursing. They promised to use their music to help heal their future patients and themselves. Knowing them has helped to heal me.

On All Saints Day, (November 1, 2015), I sat in a circle . . . to sing a song I wrote for Carol, my partner. We met on November 1st, 2002, 13 years to the day. She passed into eternity in 2012. Not so long ago. 

I am accompanied by Diane Doolittle on flute. Special thanks to Ingrid Heldt from the NJ Friends of Clearwater Song Circle in Eatontown, New Jersey. Video by Linda Phillips.
