Carol was an amazing person and I will miss her dearly.
Carolyn and I were friends from 1st grade until we graduated in l961, I considered her my best lifelong friend. We spent many hours riding a bus to ballgames and other school events. She was strikingly beautiful and a great basketball player. We spent lots of time dreaming of what our lives would be like. I am so glad she enjoyed such a great career and I just know she was a blessing to those she worked with.
One of my closest and best friends, Carol was a very special lady to me, and I’m sure to many others. I miss her.
We send our sincere condolences. She was a 1961 classmate of Wayne's.
