Dear Family Members,
I am a resident at Bethany Village and ate at the same table as Carol. She sat in the next chair beside me to my right. I miss Carol terribly and send my love and best wishes for comfort to all of you. All of the others at Bethany, and especially at our table of 10, miss Carol's always smiling face. We are all blessed to have known her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love.
Billie Bindner
