Gerald, I am so sorry to hear of Carole's passing. I have seen her out and about down through the years, the last time being when I saw you and her eating at Bojangles in Jonesborough not long ago. Carole was in my class in school, partly through elementary school, and in high school. Although she was quiet and appeared bashful sometimes, she and I had some good talks, and I liked her a lot. I called Lester, and he wanted me to get your phone number for him, and he was sorry he couldn't make it back to Tennessee for her funeral. you can reach me. Please call me if my husband and I can do anything to help you and your family during this time. My phone number is 928-5434. May God comfort you and your family.
