    So sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. She was the last of that generation. I will always miss hanging out with her and Jane – I loved to hear them laugh about all the fun times they’ve had. She had such a rough time this last year, I hope she is free from her pain and ongoing medical issues. I’ll miss her –
