Mary Carolyn was my oldest and most dear friend. We were together non-stop from the age of 6. We slept over many, many, many times. We had swim lessons together. She was way better than me. She did the "most beautiful " jack-knife off the high dive of anyone that I ever knew! We dug up civil war relics in the cellar of their old house on the corner. I'm pretty sure that
Richard and Ginger were down there digging as well. A cool place to play in the summer time. I could go on and on, but I'll share a recent memory. All the old girls' group got together a few months months ago for dinner, We got to Coltons early and closed the place down. Mary Carolyn was so quick witted and "Real". It was like we had never parted with our separate family commitments. We will miss her, and will keep her family in our thoughts as we all mourn her passing.
