We are so very sad to learn of the passing of our long-time friend, Carla. Bob and Carla worked together at Penboss Associates in the 60's. We have maintained our friendship over the years and enjoyed seeing Carla in Florida and Bermuda. Her enthusiastic promotion of Bermuda tourism and love of the Island enabled many visitors to enjoy their perfect vacation. We shall miss Carla.
