Back in 1964, Caroll, myself. and couple other classmates decided to go bowling. Caroll was my date and of course, my bowling partner. She rolled a perfect game-sort of? Every ball she rolled, in every frame, ended up in a gutter, zero pins were damaged! Caroll was an equal opportunity gutter bowler! First ball in the right gutter, second one in the left gutter! No favorites! Each time she did that, she giggled and laughed more. By the time the game was over, all of us were hysterical too! Caroll had a wonderful sense of humor, and a great laugh to go with it. Next time i hear thunder, i will think Caroll rolled another gutter ball.
RIP Caroll I am very sad today.

To the Pinto family:
Please know that I'm praying for your family. May you find peace, comfort and strength in the days ahead. I knew your parents for many years. I used to go into JP's deli all the time. I loved their sandwiches. A couple of years ago, I would run into them eating at May's restaurant in Berwick. We always made time to talk to one another. I'm so sorry for this immense loss.
