I lost touch with Carole after Broughton. She obviously was a very bright and smart woman achieving the highest degree in the pharmacy field. I'd like to think her years at Broughton helped earn this level of education and service. Through her work, she was able to help heal and treat many people who needed medicine. What a great way to serve people and represent the best in our great Class of 1967.

I have lovely childhood memories of sharing time with Carole.  She lived near me and we shared lots of laughter and other delights of adolescence.  One lovely memory I come back to often is how we used to climb out of her bedroom window onto the roof.  It was so beautiful to be among the trees and stars.  We felt so "big" and adventurous and open to Life!!  She was a wonderful friend and I cherish the times we shared.

I too, share the great admiration expressed by David and the warm sentiments expressed by Mary for Carole. Her focus on the complex world of treating profoundly intellectually disabled human beings at both Dix and Butner centers say so much about her heart and mind. Carole most likely never knew how much in love I was  with her all the years that we sat together in the clarinet section of the symphonic band because I was taught at the earliest age to stuff and hide my feelings. Starting every morning in first class tooting on a damn clarinet was worth it all just to get to know her a little . Before her suffering from Alziemers, Carole appears to have enjoyed having lived a meaningful and well lived life.

Carole was one of my oldest friends.  We went to the same church - and often skipped out of church together laugh. I, like Mary, loved that roof top deck and also have great memories of going to her mom's lab at NC State.  The first time I played golf was with Carole.  We went to Raleigh Country Club where her dad lived and "played" there.  Never got much better than that first time!  She was such an important person to me especially in my early years.
