I’m so sorry to read about Carol’s passing. I helped take care of her when I worked at the former Grand Court. She was always so nice and I enjoyed our conversations. Her brother, George, was my husband George and I’s Social Studies teacher and also our Driver’s Ed teacher at Arcadia so it was nice to hear how he was doing also. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Kevin and Sandy and families,
We read about your mother's death in the newspaper and want to send our sincere sympathies. She was such a good neighbor to the Vances on Washington Avenue. We will not forget her and Howard and the experiences we had in common.
