George and Carol Lancaster were both born in 1947, no more than one city away from each other; George was born in Murray, Carol in Salt Lake. George was raised in Crescent, attended and graduated from Jordan High School while Carol attended three different high schools, Olympus, Hillcrest, and graduated from Cyprus; her family moved around to different areas of Salt Lake. It was in the ninth grade when they finally met each other. George sat behind her in Social Studies class. Carol and George had become such good friends that as Carol was moving around, George was always making sure he found her so they could keep in touch. Over the course of four or five years these two occasionally dated, corresponded by letters back and forth and developed a very close relationship. This close relationship, in fact, later resulted in marriage in the year 1966.
