Carol and I were best friends, starting from the 3rd grade, at Grace Court Elementary school.  I always thought it was sooo neat that her childhood pet was a monkey (instead of a dog or cat).  Then both our careers were in defense electronics (as arch-competitors: Carol=E-Systems & Susan=General Dynamics).  We would laugh together about the male-dominated defense business, while fiercely working on competing strategies/ programs.  Carol made a huge difference in people's lives & in our Nation's defensive strength.  She will be missed.  Rest in peace, dear friend.

Like these colorful flowers, Carol's smile and outlook on life was beautiful.

"If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the Angels give."  (George MacDonald)  Blessings to you, Carol, and to all of those who knew and loved you!
