Caroline was such a fine lady and, yes, had that ready smile. My late husband, Lindy, and I met Caroline and Harold at the YMCA and became good friends. After our workouts we often would have lunch together full of laughter. She had such a cute wit about her. I'll miss you Caroline, but will never forget you. My love, Sylvia
