Very sad news about this multi-talented woman.

This link is from Newday, I am sure more will appear soon.

Two very moving quotes from Jacques:

"I fell in love immediately _ the first minute she appeared in ballet class," d'Amboise told The Associated Press. "She was very young and silly _ like a young horse, an American filly."

and:

"She brought to flower the better part of me, from the time I met her," he said.

Very very sad news. The world is lucky that she took so many wonderful photographs in addition to dancing, teaching, raising a family and supporting her husband in his many endeavors.

Such a jolt of sad news! I’ve always been impressed with the d’Amboise/George family. They’ve been through some hardships with the health of one of their sons, and have always been inspirational to me and my mother. May God bless her family and her precious soul.

I remember seeing Carolyn George in classes and performances when she was with San Francisco Ballet. I think her husband's discription of her as "an American filly" fits her perfectly; you couldn't miss her. May she rest in peace.

I understand a memorial service is being held tomorrow (March 30th) at Symphony Space. Does anyone know what time? I have 9:00am, but don't know if my calendar invented that or I heard it....

[Ooops... I can't keep my weeks straight any more... it's NEXT Monday].
