Dear Carol's dear family, My sympathy and prayers. Carol was a dear dear friend. I look back at all of the wonderful times Bob and I had with she and Don. I feel so fortunate that Carol and I did so much together. We were good friends! I am presently spending several months in Seattle with Becky and Wendy. Disappointed I will not be able to attend her service. My prayers, Carol was a special neat lady. Barbara Fink
