To the entire Sovie and McEwen families, I offer my sincere condolences. I have many fond childhood memories from growing up on Clark Street across from the McEwen family. Though I had not seen Carol in some time, I often thought of her and the fun times we had. You are all in my prayers.

Dick:

Riley, Chris and I were saddened to see this news. Riley is forever grateful for the love and treats he received from the Sovies during his Waddington years, and Carol making sure a treat was left at the bottom of the driveway if she had seen us walk by. I also enjoyed our many conversations in the garage. Fond North Country memories. Our thoughts are with you during these difficult days.\

Dick and Family,

We are so sorry to hear of Carol's passing. Although I hadn't seen her in years, Carol was an important part of my teenage years. We would go to the school dances, the Teen Center, and football games together. I stayed over at her house many nights. We would walk home from school together. Carol bought me my first legal beer at Bob's Tavern. She was also in our wedding. Sending our love to you all.
