Condolence & Memory Journal

Olive and I used to wait for the school bus together at the intersection of Myrtle Avenue and Baldwin Place Road. She was our nearest neighbor as the Lacinas lived right there on Myrtle. Later on we were friends at the Town of Carmel Historical Society. George, Olive and I shared many stories of the "Old Days." In fact ,our bus was number one which meant it was the first bus bought by the district. I am sorry for your loss.
