I was so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was so kind and caring. I am related to your family thru the Lambert's. My mother was your great aunt Clara. I had lost touch with Carol until recently when we came together on Facebook. May God comfort all of you and give you peace.

Carol was the first friend I had when I moved to Wesr Virginia. We strike up a conversation at club watching a band. I liked her right away! She was so lind and made me comfortable. We would laugh and talk about everything. I remember her telling me about her daughter's wedding and she was so excited
She loved her children very much
Then when I told her that Larry and I were getting married she right away offered to do. The wedding pictuces as a gift. I was so happy and the ones I got to see were amazing. I just talked to her the day before and she was working on getting them ready
I will miss her and the times we had together. It still isn't real to me
I keep wanting to text her
I know that she is with the Lord.
Fly high my dear friend.

Carol and I met at a Christian coffee house called The Harbor in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. My band Twice Born was playing there, and a wonderful friendship was born that evening. As time went on our friendship evolved into a beautiful relationship for 3 years. Carol loved being a companion, and taking care of my elderly father who was in failing health. We had many wonderful memories from trips to motorcycle rides that we shared together. Carol loved live music and was very supportive of me and our music. Carol loved dogs and our dogs were our kids in her eyes. I will miss you my friend, but I know from what God has promised us that those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour will never die and we will be together with our loved ones again in paradise. So fly high and spread those angel wings wide my friend until we meet again.

Carol and I were neighbors and friends. I helped Carol in a difficile time. She was here for me when my husband died.

As one of our band’s biggest fans it was always a joy to see Carol at our concerts. Especially at the Way Station in Waynesboro, we always knew she would be one of the happy faces in the crowd. And I always appreciated the encouraging words she always gave us. She’ll be missed.
