Howard, Carol* - Portland  
Carol Howard KENNEBUNK - Carol Howard, teacher of special needs children, energy healer, hospice volunteer for 11 years, master gardener, baker of succulent delights, quilter, storyteller, devotee of the theatre, and glorious wife and helpmate of 40 years, died on Tuesday night, March 24, 2015, at Gosnell Hospice Center, Scarborough. Born in 1952, in Houston, Texas, the daughter of Buster and Lucille Cook, she married Michael Howard in 1975. They lived 12 years in New York City, before moving to Maine in 1989. Carol is survived by her husband, Michael of Kennebunk; and sister, Glenda of Houston. Mourned by many dear friends from Texas, New York and Southern Maine. Carol created a special bond with her special needs children, particularly Nikki Coombs of Wells with whom she worked for many years. Her warmth and light and grace touched the lives of all who met her. An informal celebration of her life will be held Friday, March 27, 1 p.m., in the parish hall at the Kennebunk Unitarian Church. And you begin to accept your defeats With your head up and your eyes open With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child, And you learn to Because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. After a while you learn… That even sunshine burns if you get too much. So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul, Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure… --Louis Borges
