Dick and the Abbott family I am sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. She was a sweet woman and a fellow Cardinals fan. What a love story. I always enjoyed seeing Carol and Dick when visiting Buffalo and attending Calvary with Mom, Dad and my family. Hugs to you all.
