When I was in the 4th grade I had a huge crush on Carson.  I saved up enough money from my paper route to buy her a box of  Valentine's Candy (Shaped in a heart) from Dinglewood.  I left it on her doorstep addressed to Carson but without a note because I was so afraid to talk to her if she came to the door.  I ran away as fast as I could on foot to the safety of my trusty bicycle hidden in the woods.  I found out later that I left it at her neighbor's house that was similar in style to her home.  The owners deliverred the candy to her later.  Somehow Carson knew it was me......(probably the poor penmanship)  and thanked me the next school day. 

Carson was a real sweetheart.  I miss her company and that Mona Lisa smile she always had on her face.

I'm sure I was one of the many guys that had a huge crush on Carson.  Cutest dimples and prettiest smile, ever.  Such a sweet lady and family.  I haven't heard of Bolts whereabouts in years.  Albany?

I thought Carson was the most beautiful, sweet and popular classmate at CHS! I never knew her there, I just knew of her...everyone did! Later, when we were both in our early thirties, we would work a rotation together at the Atlanta Opera as volunteers for our Junior Leaque. I felt like I was working with a local celebrity! Turns out, she really was beautiful, inside and out, and still just as sweet. I always loved most every genre of music, but never understood opera. After we had passed out the programs, we were allowed to stay and watch the show. I'll never forget how Carson would whisper during it, to explain to the ignorant, but interested me, what was going on...not in a condesending way, but in a very caring, sweet way. I realized that evening how she deserved to be the "it" girl at CHS and every other place she went. I got to see just how special she truly was, even ever so briefly. What a shame she lost her life so young...the world could really use her beautiful, sweet spirit.
