Carol Fleming-Al Alroush

Carol Fleming-Al Alroush
                                     October 09, 1959 - May 27, 2013


Initially, when I started my blog, it was to keep in touch with family and friends and to minimize sending multiple emails and pictures to everyone especially from a place where I consider the internet service to be a bit slow. So a month before I arrived in Saudi (August 2011), I got motivated to blog my experiences from following the blog, American Bedu (www.americanbedu.com).  
           Through my readership, one of the women that lives on my compound (Thanks Charmie!) connected me with her friend, renowned blogger Carol Fleming aka American Bedu. It was an honor and pleasure to be recognized and interviewed by such a well-known icon. 

            I have never met Carol, but feel connected to her spiritually. I am so grateful and honored that she touched my life. What a special woman who achieved and did so much for others. My condolences go out to her family. I will never forget her. She has truly been my inspiration to me and so many others!
All the best,


  1. I met Carol while on a several day trip to Saudi Arabia to conduct a workshop for physicians who wanted to develop higher quality test questions. I too have been touched by her incredible courage, and her reaction to the challenges she has faced. My condolences to her son and the grandchildren who meant so much to her.

  2. I met miss fleming long ago when I was about 5 or 6. My mother was one of her friends oh how I feel so sorry for her. My deepest condolence to her family.

    1. Thank you for the wonderful comments! Though I never met Carol in person, we corresponded by email. She was a very nice person with a beautiful spirit. Thanks for checking in on GMarie's Page!
