A Valentine For My Wife Deb

February 14, 2011

This Valentine’s Day, I’m reminded of how lucky I am to have married my wife Deb. Besides being a wonderful wife and mother to our three children, she has gone the extra mile over and over again with her involvement at Carruth Studio. 25 years ago she gave up her career as an occupational therapist, to help me try my hand at sculpting full time.


Looking back now, I realize what a gamble it was and how totally time consuming, frightening and frustrating running a small business would be at times.

But through it all, she was always up for any challenge. Because of her ability to connect with and enjoy learning from people, she was able to open doors and keep our little company always moving forward.

She accomplished this by organizing all of the paperwork, taxes, advertising, promotion, managing the office, going to trade shows and all the other endless challenges involved with running a business.

This crazy chaos was kept under control, while at the same time being a loving wife, friend and mother. So Happy Valentine’s Day Deborah, and thank you for being YOU! I love you dearly, George.
