I remember Carol way back when she was in high school, and she visited the lunch room that I helped in with my husband at that time. She came in with her high school boyfriend that later became her husband. I use to ride to work at Sears at a later time in my life with her mother, Olive Taflinger. We talked a lot about our children at this time, and I felt I knew Carol Sue. I'm sorry for your loss.
