homebeautiful My husband and I (recently) had the unexpected pleasure by Nancy of sharing a lunch table with Robinson Nancy Robinson and her family. Nancy told us she wrote design articles for Ladue News. I just found your publication online, (and) I would like to compliment you and Nancy on the interesting, well-written, lively articles on design. It makes me want to read more! She writes in the same style as she is in person—witty and bright and humorous. She also promotes local designers, and gets up close and personal with them. The interviews were fun to read, too!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Trish, for sending Diane Anderson to The Gatesworth the day of our book launch for The Peanut Butter Birthday Party...I was thrilled that we were able to send over 40 jars of peanut butter to the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry. Plus, the residents took home envelopes to mail in donations to Stray Rescue. And, I will be making a donation to Kids Rock Cancer. Sold bunches of books, too, but my big thrill is that these marvelous non-profits benefit...Having Ladue News makes people aware of all these nonprofits, and you make people want to get involved. You deserve to go to bed every night with a big smile on your face.

Patricia Cornwell Flesh and Blood: A Scarpetta Novel Saturday, November 15, 7 p.m. The Ethical Society of St. Louis 9001 Clayton Road

#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell delivers the next enthralling thriller in her high-stakes series starring Kay Scarpetta—a complex tale involving a serial sniper who strikes chillingly close to the forensic sleuth herself. The victims appear to have had nothing in common, and there is no pattern to indicate where the killer will strike next. First New Jersey, then Massachusetts, and then the murky depths off the coast of South Florida, where Scarpetta investigates a shipwreck, looking for answers that only she can discover and analyze. And it is there that she comes face to face with shocking evidence that implicates her techo genius niece, Lucy, Scarpetta’s own flesh and blood.

Nowadays, it’s very common for a funeral home to offer cremation services. You might not know that cremation and on-site cremation are two very different options. Having an on-site crematory is just another way we guarantee that your loved one’s care is always in reach and near to our hearts.

Things just got a little dapper at CRAIG ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in the Parkway School District, where every Tuesday is Bow Tie Tuesday. The idea was started by Principal BILL SENTI and his staff; and now, students have caught on, and are putting their own style on display.

Thank you to our media sponsors

Almost everyone offers cremation. Offering on-site cremation puts us in a class of our own.
