My parents, Daryl & Janet Mitchell, were best friends with Monty & Ina for many years. The first time I saw "I Love Lucy" was at their house, sitting in the floor with Carolyn. Carolyn helped me cut out paper dolls; Rosemary Clooney and many others. As I approach 74 years old, these memories stand out to me more & more. My wish is that all of you have happy memories of growing up with her. My sympathies for your loss.
