Thank You, Jeff and My Family for 'Giving Me the Best Day of My Life'!! I Love You!
On this page I'll describe each member of my family... which is undoubtedly a TRICKY task, since our family is so spread
out and "removed" several times...hehehe! :)
*We have some fairly NEW ADDITIONS to the family!! One is Katelyn Jewell
Carr, born on November 7th, 2003 to Welsey & Kim Carr... YAAAAAAY!! PLUS,
we have a newly discovered (a couple of years ago) half-sister, Michele Rene Wood, born on June 21st,
1966 & her Hubby (Vinny), who we finally go to meet back in Nov., 2005 and we have also met most of her family, except
two of her Girls, Christina & Brit, who I look forward to meeting in person someday soon!! WILD, huh?
* I need to update this Family Page with PIX now...
Boy, DO THEY LOOK GOOOOD!! These are my Colorado Parents, Gerald Glen Slaugh and Karen Jane Slaugh... they raised myself
and Wesley to be a couple of REALLY interesting individuals... I will always be indebted to them for most of my interests
and values... Thank You, Mom and Dad for everything you are, and everything you MEAN to me!! :)
This is my Colorado Family sometime in the 70's... frightening! Just kidding! We were kind of cute, I think! Nice Burns,
Dad... beautiful bowl-cut, Wesley and ME... MOM what the hell did ya do to my HAIR? I look like Goldie Locks! Hahaha! Mom
you always looked good! :)
By the way, for those of you who do not think that I am a true blonde, take a GANDER
at the picture above... Now, mind you, I'm talking about the color of my hair and not the intelligence factor! :)
Love of My Life, Jeff & Me Christmas Eve 2004
XMAS Eve Party at Nicole's House in Worcester, MA
Above you see my Grandpa Kenny Melson. In his Day, he and my late Grandma Judy
Melson were avid bowlers and won COUNTLESS trophies where they lived in the Salton Sea area of CA! :) They raised my Mom in
Garden Grove, CA and ended up living in Colorado close to all of us... It was always a joy having Grandma and Grandpa close
and we had lots of fun on Holidays and camping, etc... My Grandma Judy was a beautiful and loving person and is missed every
day! As of May Day, 2002... I am sorry to say that Grandpa Kenny, too, has passed away! We will miss him terribly...
but, he lived a good life and that provides some comfort for our loss... WE LOVE YOU, GRANDPA!!
Below, you see a MUCH better picture of Grandpa Kenny Melson with Mom at Wes and
Kim's wedding on Sept. 25th, 1999. He was "ALL slicked-up" in this photo! Hehehe! :)
Above, waving at us, is my Colorado Sister, Debra. Mom and I surprised Deb and the kids and Dad on Memorial Day Weekend 2001,
when I came driving up to the cabin out of nowhere from Boston/Cambrige!! :) You should have SEEN the looks on their faces,
especially Debra's..teehee!! :) This picture is from that weekend! :)
Above are My COLORADO Nieces & Nephew (Samantha, Ashley & Chase). They are in Colorado
and are going/went to the same schools that Wes and I went to and they even have/had some of the same teachers! Our
Colorado Dad grew up in this area and also went to the same schools! :)
Samantha has a baby now (Steven Riley) and Ashley GRADUATED from FMHS last year and is already
in college... Chase is at FMHS now!! My gosh, where does the time go?? :)
Here is a goofy story: Chase LOST the end of his pinky finger a few years ago in a
mishap involving a piece of wire and a dog... don't ask... but I wanted to say, "PLEASE don't dream of occupations in
your future requiring the use of anything sharp, like say for example, a skill-saw!!" :) Hahaha!!
Above are myself and Aunt "B", Betty Conoley (a very close friend of our family)
at her house in CO... she cooked dinner for us one night over the Holidays 1999/2000 and it was wonderful!
BELOW are my Beautiful Sister, Jamie and my Handsome Nephew, Jason... We are OBVIOUSLY
RELATED, don't you think?!
Jamie looks like Alanis Morrisette, wouldn't you say? WOW! :)
They live in Southern
California and I would like to let them know I Love them and I'm thinking about them often! :)
*CONGRATS to Jamie & James!! James & Jamie were married on March 18th!
I couldn't ask for a nicer Brother-in-Law (besides Vinn-Doggie!)
My Handsome Nephew, Jason!
Below is my eldest Brother, Tommy (49), who was a Kind, Sweet, Smart, Loving Brother...
He passed-away on Jan. 21st, 2006 and I will NEVER FORGET him! I think about him everyday and those who have passed
before us and I can only think... LIVE LIFE THE BEST WE CAN in THEIR HONOR! It is here one day and gone the next! But
while we are here... we MUST GO ON and ENJOY IT!! Tommy rests in Forrest Lawn in Burbank and is now hangin'-out
with Lucille Ball & Liberace! ;) He leaves with us two very LOVELY daughters, Taylor and Hailey...
And here is my Niece, Hailey Carr: Future Guess Jeans Girl!!
My CA Family (less Tommy's Girls):
Tommy, Tom, Patti, Jason,
Amy and Jamie...
Patricia Carr-Bosley being Honored with her Star in Palm Springs... Congrats to YOU Patti for Many
Years of Contributing to Stage, Film and TV in CA and beyond! :)
Patti receives her STAR in Palm Springs! :)

Below: I sang at Tommy & Stacey's Wedding...
Then, I sang for Tommy's Service when he passed...
I will always sing for My Brother...
I Love You, Tommy!

Jeffrey & Me on New Year's Eve 1999-2000
Havasu Days! Carr's at Our Finest!
Tommy, Wesley, Me, Maui (then Havasu) Dad
Our Maui Dad, Kimo (Jim) Carr... the Harley Ridin'-Computer Addict-Baking Fiend!! -- Plus he is an extremely talented musician
and is a Jazz enthusiast to the HILT-- he played String Bass way back when and THE PLATTERS were even interested in having
him play with them before they became famous! :) WOW!! TOO COOL, Kimo! Whenever you're near him and his Bass is within
reach... watch OUT... I don't know what he sounded like in his twenties, but he BLOWS ME AWAY when he starts pluckin' away
like Paco de Lucia does on the Flamenco Guitar! :) It is like a part of his body-- wonderful! :) What a GREAT picture,
Sandy, Thank YOU! :)
Here is my Maui Mom and Maui Sister, Sandy and Kelly!
Kelly has a lovely little girl named Ella who I have yet to meet! PIX of her
will be added when can find one! ;)
I wanted to extend a warm Aloha to my Maui Family!
*Below them are Sachi and Nikko, their doggies! Wes, NO PLAYING FETCH in the HOUSE,
K! :) Oooooops! :)
Below is a REALLY nice pic of Kimo & Sandy Carr at the Ritz on Maui! :)
Below are My Grandma Adeline Carr and her son, Kimo (Jim) Carr! :) This pic dates back a ways! :) (Pictured in June of 1986)!)
This is my FABULOUS and TALENTED Grandma Adeline "Addie" Carr standing with the hat on and Hawaiian mural behind
her!! She is a performer, TOO-- she performed for the USO during WWII and had a country singing group of girls (a quartet)
and played piano, tap-danced, performed with marionettes AND she even WON the "Pillsbury Bake-Off" in the 1970's(?)
with her "Peanutbutter-Pizza" and won herself a trip to Hawaii!! :) Pretty COOL, huh? She now lives in Arizona,
near Pheonix, and sings and plays piano and tells stories to her friends and many others in her presence... Are you starting
to SEE exactly WHERE I get it? :) I love you Grandma Carr! :) Somebody SHOW her this! :) FUN!
Me & Michele!! Our VERY FIRST photo together!! 'VIVA LAS
VEGAS', BABY!! ;)
