Their business ventures led them to travel extensively throughout the United States and Canada. When traveling, Caroline always enjoyed the opportunity to shop.

Ken, Caroline will be missed. She was always very sweet and really made me feel good just to chat with her. I think at one time or another she talked to just about everyone at the Black-eyed Pea. She was an angel on earth.
I will always feel I was blessed to have known her.

Your friends at the Pea,

Ken, Denise, Dougie, Carrie, Sammy, Adrian, and other family members, I am so sad, and my deepest sympathy and prayers are with you now in our enormous time of loss. Sweet Caroline was like a sister to me and I have very fond memories of our great times together. She was a favorite of my late husband, Bill. We rocked the Texas World Speedway! I had planned to be there for the celebration of her life, but I became ill in the night last night and am not able to make the drive today. Please know that I am there in spirit. I used to call her Sunshine because of her sunny disposition and happy personality and I shall always remember her that way. Sue McRae

We are deeply sorrowed by Caroline's passing. We will miss our dear and fiesty neighbor and our get-togethers. Every time I look at the bushes between our homes I think of Caroline since she wanted them so I couldn't see her in the shower. I'll try to nourish them in memory of her. If there's anything we can do just say the word.

Ken and Family, Our sympathy and prayers go out to you. We have very fond memories of Caroline. Our kids still talk about our trip to New Mexico and what fun they had and how much we all appreciated Caroline. Mom always looked forward to the both of you coming and visiting her when you were in the NG area. Caroline will be missed. Tom and Connie Keel

Kenneth, We can't begin to tell you how sorry we are. Caroline was such a bright spot in our lives. We are sorry we can't be with you and the family at this sad time. Please let her family know that we knew all about them from Caroline - she was so proud of all of them. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Ken, I wish to heap my profuse heartfelt sympathy for you and Caroline's loved ones. She became such a beautiful, giving, and gracious friend. I hold both of you in my heart forever, and will miss her more than words can say. Even though I will be unable to attend the funeral in Bryan, my heart will be with you, Ken.
