It always comes as somewhat  of a shock to my memeory to hear about someone I knew that passes away.  Carol was the first girl in High School to ask me to a girls choice dance, "Knights in White Satin"   I still remember the look in her eyes as we danced.  After high school,  I never saw her again, but would think of her every now and then.  I'm sad right now.....

We were friends since the 6th grade.  She was such a kind, gentle and devoted friend.   She never missed a Christmas card over the years until her diagnosis.  Our world is darker but heaven is brighter with Carol there.

I've know Carol since grade school and had several classes with her through the years, even at the U.  I remember her as smart and kind, always nice to everyone.  To have someone like her pass because of the brutality of Alzheimer's disease is heart wrenching.  She was one of the ones I always hope to see at the reunions.  Like Brad said, it's a shock to hear about the passing of someone you knew so well.  

God Speed Carol.
