To the Harrison Family--
My deepest sympathy are with all of you. Miss Carol was always so sweet and friendly when she visited the White Plains Post Office and I enjoyed waiting on her and many of you prior to my retirement. She shared several plants with me because we both enjoyed working with flowers and we enjoyed many happy conversations about our family members. Please know you are all in my prayers for peace at this difficult time.

I was saddened to hear about Carol. Carol was my half aunt. I had not seen her since we were kids and was glad to learn she had a good life. In reading her obituary I see that only Floyd and Sue are left of her siblings. Hang in there you two.

So sorry to hear of Carol June's passing. I lost track of her after her Mother died but Ruth kept me informed. I remember her as a young girl with a great sense of humor. My mother was Eula Lewis, her first cousin.
