We were saddened to hear of Carol’s passing. We offer our sincere condolences to the whole family. We were so glad that we were able to visit her a number of times when we traveled to Florida and more recently on the telephone. She was a dear lady. As cousins, we were fortunate to grow up next door to one another. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
