Subject: Obit: Senseless killing of NH singer
From: AllisonA(Animaterra)
Date: 09 Jan 12 - 03:55 PM

My heart and the hearts of many dear local friends are broken today. A beautiful woman of our village, Carol Raynsford, was found murdered in Arizona over the weekend, along with her partner. It seems like a random act of violence.

I've tried to link to one of the stories; it's in the Washington Post and several others. But when I test the links, it doesn't let me in.

Sit with me awhile, please.

What a senseless tragedy, Allison, my sympathies and support to you and her family and friends.

I hope she is listening to the "flowers sing" as her CD was named. With her apparent beliefs, I hope she is able to "visit" her new grandbaby.

I will sing Until the Darktime Ends for both of them. May our singing join in giving you, her and her partner, and family and friends the comfort so beautifully expressed in "singing voices."

Completely senseless and insane...

100,000 Americans get shot every year and if you believe the NRA's mythology it would be 22 times more than that if we controlled the sales of handguns...

This story makes me sick...

It's one thing to hear about someone being found shot and quite another to put a face and story with it...

I am so sorry to read of this... My heart goes out to you, Allison, and all of Carol's friends and family...

Having never met either you or your friend, Allison, I can nevertheless share your sense of devastation.

I came home from a weekend conference some years ago to news that my boss/friend was dead, and it was rapidly confirmed that this was 'suspicious'. Waiting for any information was emotionally draining; waiting for an arrest and a trial (several months) was nervewracking; and waiting for a verdict (to help us come to terms and make some sense of the horror of Mary's death) was a nightmare, because the trial was abandoned.

You can never change what has happened, but please try to focus on the good memories -- it's the only way to proceed, and I'm absolutely sure that it's what your friend would have wished.

Heartfelt condolences!

condolences & hugs

When I was a teenager, my greatuncle's stepson was killed in a pub. Stepson & his son were having a quiet game of pool when somehow he "offended" a bloke who was very drunk. Bloke later followed them into the carpark & attacked stepson from behind, killing him.

Is Raynsford's former husband Keith Duesenberry related to Peggy Duesenberry, the old-time/contra fiddler who lived in Scotland a few years ago? (I've lost touch - used to play with Peggy for the local contra group, but she got too ill to continue).

Thanks, dear friends. It really helps to have your love and sympathy.

Jack Campin, yes, the very one. Keith died many years ago, after their divorce.

Casey, thanks so much for the offer. As far as I know, the only thing planned so far is a memorial service here in Nelson on Jan. 21. Anyone can PM me for more details.

SINS, I hadn't heard that the link had been established, but I knew it was considered a strong possibility.

Micca, give a special thought to Alouette, who is devastated, sick with a nasty flu-y cold, and expecting her daughter Margie to pop premature twins by the end of the week!

But life does go on, and I'm in the throes of preparing for another Animaterra chorus season. When all else fails, sing.

wow this story is taking strange twists and turns..

http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/dpp/news/crime/man-who-shot-deputy-a-marine-1-9-2012

the suspect who was shot was " A Marine, 30 years old, with a consuming interest in the unexplained -- an author who wrote about the apocalypse, Armageddon, and judgment day. "

If he is the guy who caused the deaths of Carol and her partner, he paid the ultimate price. Very bizarre.

There be a memorial service for Carol here in Nelson on January 21. Between now and then, friends are folding paper cranes to celebrate her love of life and peace.

A few years ago she performed in a production of a living history project called "Hotel Nelson". Her part was a parody of sorts, a wonderful song that she wrote called "Hill Farms Don't Pay". You can see her (in costume, but not far from the real Carol!) here (Gordon Peery at the piano).

How stupid, how unnecessary, how just plain sad. Really sorry for your loss, Allison. Hugs and songs...

I really do object to the adjective "elderly" in several of the news stories. Sixty-three is full of life and in our middle years. We should have had their company here on earth for many more years.
