Dear Sheri and Family:

Please accept our heartfelt thoughts and prayers on the recent loss of your dear mom Carol. I have such sweet memories of
driving with my parents to Chicago Heights to visit you and your family and also over Christmas holidays when we would often host the family at our house on Wespark in Whiting. I always found Carol to be a warm, compassionate, soft spoken, and thoughtful person--because of this I gravitated to her. I am sure that her students all felt the same way and they were so lucky to have had her as a teacher in the most formative times of their lives. Please take care and let's stay in touch! Lots of love to you all, Craig and Ronda Carter, Lexington, KY

I loved Carol as my third-grade teacher. I thought it was kind of neat that my brother was dating her daughter. Carol really thought I was a spoiled brat which is probably somewhat true back in those days. My heartfelt condolences go out to the family, I love you all

My condolences Sheri and family. Loosing a mom and grandma does break our hearts but cherish her memory and all the fun times you had with her. Now Roger will have another Angel with him and they’ll be telling each other secrets about you. Rest, relax, take deep breaths. Take care of yourself. This has been a very hard year . God bless

With Sympathy,
Diane Bentley
