    Dear Al & Family,
    I am so very sorry to hear about Carole.
    From the first time I saw her checking out at Van’s when I was a kid, I thought she was the Most Beautiful Woman and have thought that ever since, I thought she was a Swedish model as tall as she was, but Al told me she was from here. She was a wonderful woman!
    My thought and prayers are with you all.
