I met Carol over 2 decades ago at Mount Olive Baptist Church in Arlington. What I remember most about Carol is her kindness and sweet spirit. She was always positive-minded, encouraging and truly loved the Lord. Even our short conversations were uplifting. I'm blessed to have known her.

I continue to pray for Kendon, her mother and the family. May God keep His loving arms wrapped around you to comfort you, encourage and lift you.

Proverbs 17:17a - "A friend loves at all times..."

In His love,

To the family and a host of grief stricken friends, my heart goes out to all as we grieve Carol's transition from labor to reward. I'll always remember her infectious smile and her endearing personality. She was a self starter and had a can do attitude which contributed to her great success in the business world. We will all miss her.

From her former uncle by marriage.
