    My Daddy, so many memories, being a U.S. History teacher, he introduce us kids to classical music, art museums, historical buildings, old cemeteries. We went for many of Sunday drives with our Dad and Mom visiting local sites. He made sure we had a pony named Dusty to occupy our time when we weren’t in school. He gave us candy and ice cream. He was everything to us kids growing up. He was in my life for almost 59 years, I will miss picking up the phone and being able to talk with him, he loved life and didn’t want to leave us… There won’t be a day that goes by that I will not be thinking of him, wishing he was with me, loving him forever… His daughter Carmella

    On February 13, 2011, a big change took place at Lake of the Pines, with a quiet loss. For the past 33 years, Carl Coleman was the king of Long Court. His friends were the young he mentored, his neighbors and peers and a wide array of animals he cared for. Carl was also known for his daily summer swims in the lake. Well into his 80s, he made this his trademark. He loved talking to strangers on the shore, sharing his storied past in the California Civilian Conservation Corps, on the front lines in Germany during World War II and his service during the Korean War. He was also a teacher, and never forgot the duty of his long career discussing history and politics. As people come and people go in this community, his memory will ultimately fade away. But the elder trees, the generations of deer, squirrels, birds and even the bats, will still feel his presence on a hill on Long Court.
