Condolence & Memory Journal

Andrea, Your Mother has been on my mind. Now I understand why. I was just a young woman when I met Carol at L.S. Ayres Glenbrook back in 1966. My job was working in Personnel and Training. Your Mother and I were friends. I attended your first wedding, saw Amy perform with her high school band in Indianapolis because I was there as my nephew was Field Commander of the East Noble Band. She, Flo Elias and others of us had some fun times together. I am so sorry I missed the visitation and service. Don't read the JG very often and at 3:00PM I read about todays service and looked up the article from earlier in the week. My sincerest sympathy to you, Amy and your grandson. Jill Jollief
