Sweet Carla was one of my best friends in high school. She was two years older, but we were neighbors and had great times together. We haven't been in touch for years, so when my Christmas card was returned, I googled and learned that Carla passed away last August. This makes me sad. I knew her brother, Darrel, pretty well, but don't know if he will remember me. Condolences to her family and friends. This just shows that we should keep in touch with people while we have the chance.
