    Caroline forwarded this wonderful memento to me about me beloved Aunt Carrie. She treasured Joe and me as children of her loved brother Chet and was always important in our lives. Anyone who knew her honored her. Love to you all in our common memories of your grandmother and my aunt. from Joyce Van Noy Burt
