My sympathy to Todd and his family.
I worked for Carol at Ibt. She was a lovely lady.
She loved her church family and gave a t lot of her time working there.
I know she is resting in peace with our Lord!

Carol was my second cousin, and she and Vernon were very special to Martha & me. We visited them any time we were in the Peoria area, and even cruised with them several years ago. We loved them both.
