    I am so sorry to hear of Carole’s passing. She was such a sweet lady and I so enjoyed working with her at Glaxo for many many years. She always talked about her children and grandchildren with the biggest smile on her face. She is with Barry again and I know that was a great reunion. Prayers for you all as you go through this trying time.
