Sid and Family, Doug and I are devastated to hear of Carol's passing. Carol was important to us and we shall miss her greatly. We met at the Brevard Health and Racquet club and she and I had many chats in the locker room. I feel as if I have lost a sister since we shared many thoughts and feelings. We also shared political ideas and I am sure that we could have solved many of the world's problems given time. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers and if you have a memorial service in Brevard please let us know as we would like to honor her. Dee and Doug Pattison, in the local phone book.
