It is now May 2016 and oh how my heart aches for Carol. Carol was not only my mother-in-law for 9 years, she was a close friend for over 30 years. The last 9 we just got so close. Oh how I miss her, can't wait for the New System of Things to welcome her back with grateful tears and hugs. Nona

I loved, loved Carol. Her voice and her smile reminded me so much of my grandmother and I told her that the very first time I worked with her out in service many years ago. I would never has guessed she was 78! She was obviously young at heart : ) She will be missed, but not for long.

The first time I meet Carol was at Nona's Partylite show, I remember her bright smile when we greeted each other, she had kind words to speak to everyone. I did have the opportunity to visit with her, and enjoyed how she shared bits and pieces of her life. She had a very gently soul, I could tell she was loved by many. I will miss the smile and kind words but grateful that she is at peace. Much love to her family. Katie Weishaar
