Although I have had no contact with Carol since the mid-1960's, she remains in my memory a vital and very consequential part of my past, indeed, my life. She was one of my late wife's (Susan Doris Saso Maddox) and my dearest friends. It was after her that our son, Douglass Brian Maddox, was named. Carol was a vibrant, caring, eternally cheerful, encouraging and loving individual, ever-ready with a kind word, deep understanding and a helping hand when one was sorely needed. I can yet hear across the many miles and the so many years, the contageous laughter and joy of living that she, Suzie, Ginny (Eckroth), Judy (Horstman), my brother, Craig, and a few lucky others shared. We knew, even then, how special those friendships and those years were and have flown many a pleasant memory from that common staff in the ensuing years. Sadly, time and distance have diluted the immediacy of those treasured relationships leaving but the warmth of memory to bridge the gaps that inevitably arose. To Carol, her loved ones, her classmates from LTHS Class of '64 and all who came to know and care for her, to all who have known a richer life simply because her path and theirs chanced to cross in some meaningful way, I offer these words of remembrance and acknowledge the loss of a smile that helped light our respective worlds. I miss you as though it were still yesterday, Carol. Know peace wherever you are.

I remember riding in Dougies yellow, convertible, her wonderful Mom, renting a cottage at the Dunes, Corral show and most important borrowing her wedding dress. She was a great friend and buddy and I'm sorry we lost track of each other after high school. Sue Loesch White

I didn’t know her at all and yet she provided a lifelong memory to me that still makes me smile. I was on the school bus waiting to depart from South Campus when I looked out the window and saw her pulling out in her convertible, girlfriends lucky enough to get a ride beside her, smiling and laughing, cute as can be, just like in the movies. My loss for not having known her. RIP

I had the great opportunity to work with Carol during high school and in the Coral Show and get to know her a little. She was such a cute bright star and her energy was unbelievable. She was always so kind to me and always gave me a better feeeling about myself. Can not get much better than that. LTHS and the world was a better place for having her in it. Thank you Carol wherever you are hanging out now and making heaven a better place.

I knew her pretty well, and thought she was fab. Still is. I wanted to say more, but after Steve Maddox's wonderful remembrance, there is really little else to say. A great gal.
