I am so sorry for your loss. I went to St. John's with Michelle and I remember Carol very much. She always was smiling and welcoming. Michelle, Margaret and I would play in their pool and run between our houses playing and singing. Jeremiah was a Bullfrog was the song at the time. I love the picture - she did not change much!
