  4. Having grown up living beside the Brewsaugh family for many years in Owens Court, our lives were intertwined so much. There were 4 Brewsaugh children and 4 Wolfe children-3 girls & 1 boy-all of us the same age or close. Many days were spent playing in the creek, going to the woods for picnics or playing make believe or just riding bikes and playing in the neighborhood.

It was hard to lose the ever smiling Kathleen and even harder to say goodbye to Denise, whom we could have treasured many years longer. Dear brother and sisters will, as we will, hold her memory in our hearts for all days left.

  12. La Belle Dame sans merci O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms, Alone and palely loitering? The sedge has withered from the lake, And no birds sing. O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms, So haggard and so woe-begone? The squirrel’s granary is full, And the harvest’s done. I see a lily on thy brow, With anguish moist and fever-dew, And on thy cheeks a fading rose Fast withereth too. I met a lady in the meads, Full beautiful—a faery’s child, Her hair was long, her foot was light, And her eyes were wild. I made a garland for her head, And bracelets too, and fragrant zone; She looked at me as she did love, And made sweet moan I set her on my pacing steed, And nothing else saw all day long, For sidelong would she bend, and sing A faery’s song. She found me roots of relish sweet, And honey wild, and manna-dew, And sure in language strange she said— ‘I love thee true’. She took me to her Elfin grot, And there she wept and sighed full sore, And there I shut her wild wild eyes With kisses four. And there she lullèd me asleep, And there I dreamed—Ah! woe betide!— The latest dream I ever dreamt On the cold hill side. I saw pale kings and princes too, Pale warriors, death-pale were they all; They cried—‘La Belle Dame sans Merci Thee hath in thrall!’ I saw their starved lips in the gloam, With horrid warning gapèd wide, And I awoke and found me here, On the cold hill’s side. And this is why I sojourn here, Alone and palely loitering, Though the sedge is withered from the lake, And no birds sing. Denise was such a sweet and caring person– I knew her well during high school days, and later, whenever I used to read this John Keats poem, she would come to mind when I envisioned a \”faery\’s child.\” Rest in peace kind Denise–and condolences to all your family.

  13. To Darlene and all family members We are so sorry for your loss. May God continue to comfort you.
