I met Carol and Jim Blakslee in 1981. I had been asked to leave my GI Bill purchased home by the county and an ungrateful soon to be Ex. My finances were very tight and if I spent any money I wouldn't be able to pay my house payment. So I was living in my Chevy LUV truck. So when Jim and Carol found out I was living in my truck they offered me their spare room.. After a couple of weeks to let my situation settle out I rented their spare room. Jim and Carol were amazing. They helped me get through my divorce and kept me busy to occupy my mind. Jim passed on 8-8-1988 on a job site in Enumclaw. Carol has been on her own since then. Jim and Carol adopted lost, abandoned, castoff and senior animals constantly. They had patience and love for just about any animal that came by. When I met them they had a full grown goat they call Gideon. Jim and I had won a pinball machine at Our Place Tavern. We played that game until we wore out the relays. Then it went out into the backyard and that's when Gideon took over. It only took a week and Gideon had it disassembled completely. Then came Bodie, Wikka, Huckleberry, and a pot belly pig, and more pets than I can name in this box. But they all got a loving caring home until they passed on. Huckleberry was a senior pitbull that had the biggest SMILE I ever saw on a dog. We will all miss the Blakslee's. That little piece of home for so many. Carol was a great gardener and if you drive pass her home you can't help but be amazed at the assortment of plants that she loved so very much. I know I will miss Carol for the rest of my life. As I miss Jim Blakslee to this very day.

My son, Clayton, and I lived across the street from Carol for many years. She cared deeply for all living things, from Chipper the pony, to Gideon the pig, to Wicca the cat, to the many hens and roosters. She taught us all to garden and to celebrate May Day with the fairies. She helped cultivate who we are. She taught us kindness, love, and the strength you can have by being true to yourself. She has entwined her soul with ours, and will live on in our memories. 💐

Carol was my cousin but, we had a relationship that was more like sisters. I have far too many memories to share but they will remain in my heart forever. My heart is broken. I love you always big sis.

Carol was a friend, but due to her being a cousin of my brother/friend Bob Lampe, I regarded her as my cousin as well.
Always wanted to go meet her but never got the chance.. Guess we will meet in the next world.

Carol Blakslee may have been my 2nd cousin, but to me, she was more like my big sister, we shared our early years together while being raised by my grandparents, who were her great aunt and uncle. She will be greatly missed but will live forever in my heart. God bless and our prayers for her.
