I am so sorry to hear that Carmen has died. She was a 1949 Lewiston High classmate of mine and although she took the Clerical Course and I the College Course, I remember her. To the left of her class photo were these words: "Lo, the smiling heart." As always, it is very, very sad to lose anyone, whether it be family, friend, classmate or others. We'll miss you, Carmen.
Love, Nancy Schott Plaisted

My sincere condolences to the Carrier family, especially the children. You may remember the Froton family that lived at 33 Bushy Circle.

I have such fond memories of Carmen and Larry. They did one heck of a job raising their six children who used to play with my children, Gina ,Greg and Karen.

Sadly those are bygone days, but no one can take away the memories.

I know that this is a difficult time for you and pray that you will find some comfort in sharing those personal memories as a family. I know they were very proud of all of you.

God Bless you,

Joline Froton
