My sympathy to you all. My family lived about a mile from the Walkers.. My parents were friends of Carrie, William Richard and Helen. We all adored Carrie.
Carrie and Kenneth and my parents, Callie and Maurice Moran eloped together Dec. 24 1939 . She has always been special to our family. RIP dear Carrie.
