    Carol, I loved you the moment I met you 42 years ago. I will always remember our “pajama party” when we literally stayed up all night talking (mostly about how wonderful our two kids were). You were a wonderful friend and a beautiful , loving, caring person. You will be in my heart forever. Love, Louise
