Please accept my heartfelt condolences at this time.

Dear Family Members and Friends of Carol,
I was one of Carol's Plymouth (Nebraska) High School classmates. We graduated with a few others (tiny class of 13) from Plymouth High School in May, 1964.
Carol and I both chose to attend Fairbury Junior College (about 20 miles away) in fall, 1964. To save money we shared rides to our college classes. She drove one week and I drove the next week. Carol's parents had this big beautiful Pontiac which which felt like a luxury ride for me. I drove a rather plain Ford that was in a different class.

Our family extends our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to Carol's family. Even though she lived a full life -- over 80 years -- it is always a difficult time to lose a family member. We grieve with you at this time.

Somehow Carol and I ended up thousands of miles apart (NY and Alaska) as we moved beyond our Fairbury JC experience. I was astonished to read in her obituary that we ended doing exactly the same kind of reenactment of Civil War history with friends and family. I have a Civil War uniform and all gear which is part of a unit that re-enacts Civil War period history in Alaska -- very similar to what she and her husband enjoyed in New York.

We will mark the calendar on the day of her Memorial service in April and I am certain all of her Plymouth, Nebraska High School classmates will all share special thoughts and prayers for Carol and her family on that day.

Harvey Brandt
