I was saddened to hear that Carol had passed away.  What a wonderful spirit!  My son used her career guidance and testing before making his final choice for both a major and college.  Since I live relatively close to
Ashland, I feel badly we didn't reconnect more often.

Carol became a very, very good friend our last semester at PHS.  We would spend hours on the phone late at nite.  It was one of those "You hang up first, no, You hang up first" melodramas.  We met again at John Pfeffer's house on New Years eve (1961) where she chewed me out for not trying hard enough at Stanford.   Many years later, I got a call from her tracking me down in LA.  I'd never been to a reunion; never even knew we'd had any, but Carol insisted I come; it was the 20th.  Since we were both single at the time we went together.  Best decision I'd ever made.  I(We) had a great time. That sort of made up for the disappointment of not going to the senior all-nite with her (she already had a date).  We made sure to connect at every reunion after that.

We sort of kept in touch during her lengthy illness, and I kept telling her she was tough, and would probably out live most of us.  Guess I was wrong.  Adios mi amiga, I'll see you at the next reunion wherever it may be.  Jim
