  • I was not aware until now that Carolyn (Leen) Morgan Hampton passed away. We were school classmates & friends. I was fortunate to join her along with a small group last year for lunch. It was good to see her. I called her “Leen”, she smiled & said she hadn’t been called that for a very long time.
