I remember Carol as a very witty young lady.   I think she was in the MYF at Queen St. while a group from our class attended events.   Carol Johnson waxed and buffed her shoes every single night!!  Happily I was able to chat with Carol and Tommy Alexander at our 20th or 25th reunion, then saw her again at our 40th.   What a wonderful lady!  I am not surprised that she had a career as a Social Worker because she was such a people person.   Love,  Billie
