Carol(aka “Runt”) was very special to me. I have wonderful memories of our growing up together. I regret we didn’t have opportunities in later years to be together. I loved her, and I’m sad for all of us who were touched by her life. Oren, thank you for letting me know. You and your family will bein my prayers as you try to adjust to her no being with you. Love, Pam
