Love you Carole. We were friends and neighbors for 15 years and you and Bob were like our family. Thanks for being like a second mom and dad to us, through our ups and downs. Your love was a shining light that we will never forget. “Well done good and faithful servant”

Carole, my dear Friend. So many memories of when Carl& I came to MD from Boston. Being a part of our ministry was such a blessing. Lots of lessons learned and most of all lots of laughter. See you later Sister Friend😘

I feel so fortunate to have had some conversations with your Mom at our Tuesday morning ladies bible study. She was so sure of her faith, and was a great teacher to me. We shared the fact that we were both retired nurses, but she proved the saying "once a nurse, always a nurse" to be very true. Always caring and so sweet, yet feisty and spunky. I want to be like her when I'm in my 80's.

I'm so sure that she is very happy to be with the Lord now and with your Dad. Enjoy the sweet memories of your sweet Mom.
With love, Liz Godkin

It was a joy seeing her at church toward the front of the auditorium. She always had a smile to share.

Such a beautiful video of your MOMents - I teared up before Dr Seuss could tell me not to cry. I interacted with your Mom a few times in fellowship and the word that comes to my mind is "vibrant", from beginning to end it seems. Thanks for sharing her life through pictures and the wonderful video of Carole in song. I hope that your memories of her will help your heart heal from the loss of your Mom in this life. Sincerely, Jayne Back

You were my very best neighbor and a good friend, and will be greatly missed. Your faith is strong and we know you are with the Lord and your husband whom you loved so much.
God bless.

We did not know Carole very well, having come to Durham, NC, and the Triangle Church of Christ, just a little over 3 years ago. We did notice her sweet smile and friendliness whenever we saw her at services. After viewing the Memorial Service in memory of Carole, we are impressed, encouraged, and inspired by the life she lived. She is an example of how our Lord can transform one's life into a Godly woman who had great influence on so many, directly and indirectly. May Carole enjoy forever more the fruits of her "labor" for the Lord.

One of my first memories of Carole was of my being a new guest at the University Park Church of Christ. She and I were talking to Pearl Brown and Pearl remarked how she loved Carole's necklace she was wearing. Carole immediately took it off and gave it to Pearl insisting that she have it, much to my and Pearl's astonishment! What a selfless woman.
Then we were having a yard sale to raise money for mission work. One of the women's ministry leaders wanted to sacrifice her engagement ring to raise money but was having a really hard time parting with the ring. Carole asked her how much she hoped to get for it. The sister gave her an amount. Carole immediately took out her checkbook and wrote her a check for it and it was put in the kitty. The sister reluctantly gave Carole the ring. Then Carole gave it back to her...much to the sister's astonishment! Such a servant Carole was.
I remember Carole and Dina out in their hot tub when it was snowing and laughing about their hair freezing. She was fun!
I can go on. Carole leaves me with very fond memories, shared convictions, endless belief in me, and I will never forget her. Much love to you, Carole! From Luana and Rick

Though we did not know Carole long, we are thankful for the mark she left on our lives. Her smile, her giving spirit will long be remembered.

Also, thank you for the song choices at the service. The Acapella favorites were perfect. We know Carole is smiling down on you.

May God be your strength in the coming days as you hold on to the Precious Memories.

Love, Bob & Buena Wheless (Triangle church family)
