Carol and Joe were like second parents to me when I was little. I grew up across the street from them and Sherri and I are only a year apart in age. Our parents were close friends, and we were able to wander freely between both houses, eating snacks and playing together. I have very fond memories of Carol and loved her dearly. My prayers to all of her family for the loss of this sweet lady.
