I graduated from Russia in 1952. I remember Carl quite well. I saw him at the Sweet Shop probably eight years ago, it was nice to see somebody from the past. I live in West Milton now, have always been a part of the Dayton area. My sister Dottie (Champ) always lived in Russia. At this sad moment with a virus and sitting at home it's nice to think of person who went to school with me and brought me back into the past. I wanted you to know I care. My niece Carol Apple lives in Versailles... Blessings, Liz (Monnier) Haywood
