I have known Carole in a way most others didn't. As her sister, I knew that her special career talents were beyond measure--but she was also a terrific sister. We experienced life and death of people we love over the years, both happy and pretty terrible times. Perhaps one of my most treasured traits, was Carole's "Brandt" sense of humor. It was a family blessing--and a curse. I will miss laughing at her jokes--and having her laugh at mine.
