Dear Garlin family,

I left a voicemail message for Carole last week.

I had the privilege of knowing Carole and Gene. They were my neighbors in Florida. Good people. They watched over all the younger people in our townhouse unit on Simms. Carole invited me to have lunch with her, showed me her amazing paintings. Gene and his beautiful pens and the art of writing a letter. I made a point of writing him.

Carole is a very good conversationalist, smart, funny. She had kind words for children including my daughter, Samantha, who was 8-years-old when we moved to Parkland. She invited Sam and I to the theater for a wonderful day and she always kvelled about her boys and grandchildren.

The funniest advice Carole gave me was about dating. My future husband sent the most beautiful flowers to me. She came by and took one look at the flowers and said ...get rid of your current boyfriend, he is the real deal. She was right. They both attended our wedding.

Neil and I met up a few more times with Gene and Carole before they left for Chicago. I still have the smiling photo of them leaning in to each other.

We kept in touch every few months. We learned about Gene's illness at about the same time our son was fighting his own cancer battle. Then I learned from Gene about Carole's illness. She was always gracious, always grounded. Friends forever.

Gene and Carole are together again.

I walked into the Hawthorn room one Friday morning at 11;3o for services. Carole said , is that you Danielle ? I said yes. I knew Carole from first grade. She moved away in high school. We were the best Volleyball team. I phoned Carole after she had left Hawthorn Lakes. She said that she did not miss Hawthorn but she missed a few people from Hawthorn. One was me. I saw her apartment her and her art work. When ,she first came here she talked about double dating. Carole will be missed in her lively personality. I was at her 75th birthday at Hawthorn. We spoke of Marcias juke box in her home in the middle 5os liistening to the fast paced music. of the time. We sharerd in Johannas Starkoffs 11 th birthday at the blackhawk restaurant.
Sincerely
