“In Paradisum” from Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem
Performed by The Robert Shaw Chorale
with the Atlanta Symphony
In loving memory of Carol, age 71, a childhood friend and schoolmate from first grade on who died of cancer early Friday morning. She was one of the Golden Girls of our generation –– a classic Nordic blonde –– a Cheerleader, Homecoming Queen, a member of The Eight Sharps (a girls octet, who sang fun popular songs in close harmony) and our high school a cappella choir. Carol was enormously popular with boys and girls alike. Every boy wanted to date her –– every girl would have given her eye teeth to look like her. Best of all she was as kind and good as she was beautiful.
Goodbye, dear Carol, it was a joy to have known you.
