Someone that I did not know but perhaps should have.  I may have had a class with her but we never talked that I can remember.  I do remember those years and I was busy with my friends from Ramey and Boulter.  Of course, new friends were made at JT but none of us had the time to get to know everyone.  With each lose of a JT classmate, I feel a loss of part of myself.  Should I have gone out of my way to make sure that I knew all there and could share at least that aspect of their lives.  I feel that yes cannot be the answer for I feel it was an impossibility.  Between school, homework, other school activities, the game on Friday night, work at the local businesses, church, old friends and family, little free time was left for anything else.  Of course, after graduation, we all scattered with some never to return.  It looks like Carolyn stayed in Tyler but I have no memory of her at any of the reunions.  And it is fact that there are several that have always been in or near Tyler that have refrained from attending reunions for various reasons.  So tonight I say to Carolyn... RIP... after what I hope was a happy life.

I vaguely remember her in High School. I got out of school Jr. & Sr. year at 11:45 and went to work at Noon and got off at 10PM five days a week. Saturday & Sunday went to work at 7AM and got off at 9PM. So I did not know very may people at all.

I was talking to Andy to day, the Manager at Coburn’s Supply and he told me she dated a guy that she really loved and he got killed on a motorcycle and she could never love anyone again. Andy said she was a dedicated employee of Coburn’s, hard worker and missed by all. These kinds of person works in the background and know one knows. Great person.

I thought I would pass on this information about Carolyn since there was no other information about her.
