Carrie was a sweetheart and a free thinker, far ahead of her time. Basically she did what she pleased and could give a damn what anyone thought about it. I only met Carrie my senior year in high school, I wish I had met her earlier. Never saw or heard from her again after I graduated, until I ran across her name in Classmates dot com in early 1996 and wrote her a message to say hello, and ask how she was doing..I never got a reply.

Then, in 1998 (or 1999), I had a dream about Carrie, that she was in trouble and needed my help. I thought it so strange at the time that I should dream about Carrie after all those years and after what was really a very short relationship in High School. Then sadly, in 2001 I asked Debbie Friedrich whether Carrie had checked in for the reunion plans and I was told she had passed away. To this day I wonder why I dreamed of Carrie, and why did she leave such an impression upon me? I'll never know, but I think of her often.

Carrie was one of the funniest girls I knew in school! She used to say some the darnedest things and gave me a most unusual book one year for my birthday. Loved hanging out with her and Bruce White. Sorry she's no longer with us.

 Carrie was a neighbor and a friend. She was as smart as anyone I ever met and had a tongue as sharp as a razor. She was droll, ironic, and had a wicked wit that she never hesitated to use if you teed it up for her. Carrie was one of the first persons I ever knew who did what she wanted, thought what she wanted, and cared not one iota what anyone else thought about her because of it. I respected her for that.
