Carol and I arrived on Jones St in Yuba City about 2nd grade. Following that year, we had the same teachers every year though 8th grade.Walked to Bridge St Elementary school together; then walked to Gray St Jr High. Our paths continued to interlock through high school with walks,clubs, awards, activities.outings and adventures. Carol was quick, bright, and had a wonderful sense of humor. She made the most of adventures. We lost touch after graduation for our adult lives. But once reunited at our 50th reunion, we were very close. We shared stories and lots of photos of Kelsey (and tent adventures.) She thought of so many ways for Kelsey to join in other activities. She had so much courage in facing the challenge of the metastasized melanoma. Soldiered on through 1 and 1/2 mos of the experimental drug.But the tumors grew. She loved being organized, and even as she faced mortality, she was a role model of planning. The earlier statement of whining was not in her vocabulary is so true. I miss her e mails, forwards, red phone calls, the stories in her rapid speak. And then they ended. I miss you so much "cab". She signed everything w/lower case "cab" from her successful years as a medical transcription expert.Her ethic standards were outstanding as she related stories of her career. Truthfulness, morality, and high ethics were her trade mark. But, oh so friendly, and a wonderful grandmother and GG (Great Grandmother) You were unique and lovely Carol Ann. We all miss you! And I am so grateful for our special time together in Oroville.
