I was privileged to have Carolyn Waller Barnes as a part of my life from the time we were babies. When Carolyn and her family came to visit, the adults got the beds. Carolyn and I slept on a quilt on the floor…and talked and giggled half the night. We smoked our first (and last!) cigarettes together. I was 14 and she was 13 when we decided it was time to try that forbidden fruit. We pooled our pennies and bought a package of Salems because they had a pretty package. Hidden under a bridge, we lit up, eager to find out what was so great about these things. It took Carolyn a while because she first tried to light the filter end. Finally we were able to take a drag. I looked at her. She looked at me. “We could have had candy,” I said. Our families did not have telephones, so we wrote letters detailing our daily lives, exchanging secrets, talking about our hopes for the future. Each time one of us made a new dress, we cut a small piece of the material and sent it to the other so we could see our new clothes. We shared a lot of family traits, among them the total lack of musical ability! But that didn’t stop us. We sang together a lot. The Battle of New Orleans and Sink the Bismarck were our favorites. We belted them out tunelessly and joyfully. We grew up, and many things in our lives changed, but not all of them. A few years ago we drove together on a long road trip to visit her oldest sister, Ruth. We talked and giggled and made fun of all the “truck butts” that kept getting in front of us…and we sang. The Battle of New Orleans and Sink the Bismarck. My heart breaks that Carolyn has left this world, but I rejoice for the time she was here.
