Several readers have asked questions about Carol in their comments or emails sent to me. Carol is my youngest sister and is in her early fifties. She is eight years younger than me and was always very much a free spirit. As the youngest of five children, she also received the least amount of parental supervision of any of us and had the least expectations put on her. Due to our age difference, we were not very close growing up. After all, I was off to the university before Carol was in Junior High School. However, after Barry and I moved back to the midwest a bit ago, she and I have become very close. She is the only family member I have in this area at this time and she went through a major tragedy in her life shortly before we moved here. Her husband of almost twenty five years tragically died of cancer. It has been very good to be living so close to her at this time and very special that we have become so close at this stage of our lives.
