Carol was one of my favorite cousins. Her mother, Aunt Ann was my favorite aunt. It's been 50 yrs. since my brother Harry passed away. Just recently she told me how she loved him. Now they are sharing memories.
I always wanted to play the piano like Carol. She was a card player just like all us "Horners". Keep a place at the table for me , Carol.
