Note To A Friend, Carol Miller,
We will miss you dearly in body, but what we shared in Spirit will always lighten our thoughts when you come to mind, like the friendship we shared can not be defined. Our sincere condolences to the family she leaves behind. Know that your mom was a bridge builder and her friendships reflected that and more. We will love and continue to cherish her memories and be made strong by what you leave behind. You were truly a teacher in life, and good teachers are hard to find. God Speed Carol.
Love, Jim & Janet Hendrix

We were fiend for so long, that we were like family. We spent the best times of our lives with our kids at the beach or camping. Carol was a straight shooter with the most gentle and kind personality. She loved her family, and was a good friend. Love you kids. I miss her, too. Ninie

I remember how she was always spunky and full of energy and life - we had lots of great times camping and going to the beach when we “kids” were still kids. She had an infectious laugh, strong opinions, and you always knew where you stood with Carol - she never held back! I‘m not sure if I realized it at the time, but in retrospect I loved that about her.
