Carol, you will be sorely missed. I always loved seeing you and the get-a-long gang as I called you. You worked so hard for others and never gave up. Rest in Peace friend.

I have known Carol since her daughter was murdered and she got involved in VOCAL. I loved her, she was such a sweet lady. I called her about 3 weeks ago and talked to her. I'm so glad I did. We talked about getting together in Montgomery with a group of VOCAL friends. Sorry we didn't get to, but we will one day in Heaven. May God bless her family. Think of her health being in complete healing now. You will see her again in Heaven. Love to all of you!
