Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

MEMORIAL FOR MARIE PETTUS

All of the losses of members of our "Circus Family" we have gone through in the last few months, or even years, have not been easy, this was a hard one. Speeches by Buckles Woodcock, John Herriott, & Jim Rhony, about experiences with Bert & Marie, showed how closely our lives are intertwined, making us truly one family. We all mourn the loss of Marie Pettus, but can also feel joy that she is at peace, and reunited with Bert.




Trudy Wilson StrongTrudy & Joanne spent many Sunday afternoons in Sarasota with Sandy, taking Marie on outings. I'm sure she is reflecting on those happier times.
