1951                                2012
I always wanted to be an illustrator of some kind. Thus I used up every art class in High School. Then I attended the Art Career School in Manhattan atop of the Flatiron Building within the penthouse! Worked for a while in the art department of the U.S. Vitamin Corporation, until drafted into the United States Army. Painted a 40 ft. mural in oils for them. Honorable discharge 1955 and began the adventure toward becoming an Episcopal Priest.

              COL'S WIFE: 
  JUNE 1, 1932-MAY 23, 2010          May she rest in peace.

Dear Friends,

I wish to thank everyone for their prayers during the past nine years since the death of my beloved wife, Susan Constance Healey Carmiencke.

Len and I  will visit the blessed grave stone for the ninth time this May 23rd on the ninth anniversary of  her death, and place a colorful pot of flowers there again. We  quietly  lay our stones and pray that she is happy bathing in the light of God's love and going strength to strength.  We leave  the floral token with our thoughts about how she always enjoyed gardening. She is buried in Saint Ann's Cemetery, Sayville, Long Island, NY. See above a picture of the stone.

    Thank you for your care and prayers,

                            Fr. Col+

"Patches,"  Has kept me company since September 2010. He has a friendly and loving personality! He likes to snuggle my beard.
The Longer he's with me, the more I appreciate his company. It is so marvelous to be greeted at the door by him and he misses me, wanting to be lifted up and settled upon my chest in the recliner. Thank you Lord for loving pets.
