    To Carol’s Family

    It is with much regret I just learned of Carol’s passing. We were best friends during our high school years when we were avid roller skaters at Lincoln Park. We lost touch when Carol moved to California. She was such a sweet young girl and good friend. I am sorry we lost track of each other. May she rest in peace.
