It is with great sadness that we've learned that Rustie Carol "Roadeyeluv" Snyder has just slipped away from us.
From Rustie Kathy "HippieGirlSmile" on Thursday, Aug 18, 2011 posted to rust@yahoo:
Carol passed away today at 4:30 PM.
She was in the hospital for over 4 weeks on a respirator. She had a lot of Neil music in her room. Yesterday she was "conducting" our concert. Family and Friends!!!! It was sad to see her go.
Tree Top Flyer was her friend for over 25 years. I knew her 6 years. Carol gave her heart to anyone who knew her. She loved her Rustie friends!!!

Thank you all for your friendship to her !! She had been a fan since 1971.
Peace, Paintin' and Smilin' from all four directions
We're so saddened by this news.
As so many have already said, Carol was a special friend to all Neil fans.
We enjoyed catching up with her at the last few Bridge concerts and she was always eager to catch up with everyone and make sure they were enjoying the fests.
In 2009, Carol won a Neil photo we had donated in the IRF Bridge raffle. In 2010, she told us that she had put the photo on a shelf by a light and when the light was just right, it shined through the photo and she could see a little heart shape on Neil's chest.
When she had the fire earlier this year, we sent her another copy. We didn't hear back whether she was able to re-create the experience but she was going to try.
Carol, your heart of gold will always be missed.
she just slipped away...
rust in peace
