Gray Vincent

Gray Vincent died suddenly on October 21st at her home in Columbia, SC. Gray knew life intimately and she faced it squarely-both the darkness and the light. For most of us mortals, we could not have lived as intensely and as honestly as she. She brought all of her past to every present moment. She was unprotected from pain-both hers and the pain of those she deeply loved. She lived true to herself-without pretense or deceit. Her family was her constant concern-her sister Harriet, her brothers Thad and Charlie, and her two generations of nephews and ...

Noted and passed - Nov. 12, 2012

• Former Camdenite and equine enthusiast Sally Brown is now living in Hilton Head with her husband, Austin, but her many friends here are happy that she has had a race horse named after her, just as Austin did a couple years ago. Hall of Fame trainer Jonathan Sheppard and his wife Cathy named a filly for her earlier this year, and that horse is now in training. We don't know of any other "couples horses" which have been named for people, and it's a fitting tribute to both of the Browns.
