Carol Reid

CAROL REID: I first met Jamie in 1962 at UBC when I was 18 years old. We independently frequented the Arts Auditorium Cafeteria, where many would-be artists, writers, philosophers, and other free-thinkers came for coffee and the famous UBC cinnamon buns. He caught my eye, I caught his, and so began a lifetime of adventures and an unbreakable friendship. We moved in together in the spring of 1963 and married in January of 1964. From the moment I met him until the day he died, Jamie captivated my imagination and my heart. I never lost interest in his keen intelligence, kind generosity, and beauty as a poet. In that sense, his spirit will always be present.
