Dear Carol,
Congratulations on your fine self and life. I am afriend of Clare, Judy and Barbara...and have retired from Diocesan Social Ministry.
I was a pallbearer for Judy.
At this time a former student is writing the nomination for Clare to be in the AZ woman's hall of fame. Norah is also writing a book on Clare and Judy's lives. I want to see if Nancy could share memories.
Please be fine!!

Sister Carol I was one of your students at Tampa Catholic High School in Tampa and
we are celebrating our 50th. and 51st. class reunion and I was wondering if we could
get a letter from you on your thoughts about the school and the students.
Thank you.
