So very sorry to see that Carol Huff Knowles has passed away-- I grew up with Carol-Joann and Nedra on Flynn Ave .in the Portage lakes., living 2 doors apart--and having so much fun as kids. We met again in the Manchester area where we both ended up living. Carol and I had lunch together at Anthes after our meeting and that was the last time I saw her My sympathy is extended to her family..
