I'm going to miss her alot.I helped her over the summer last year. We talked about alot. Shared alot of funny stories. Robin and Lesa and I walked to be school together everyday. One day I walked to her house and opened the the door and fell down on the floor. It was so funny. Carolyn never let me live it down. She was funny. .
