Thank you for bringing such wonderful spirit into my life! We have incredible memories with Aunt Carol (and Uncle Dave!). What a legacy my Aunt left! How fortunate to live a life from truth, love, and kindness in her very authentic way! May we all continue to learn from her gift. I pray for my family as they grieve and ask for God's Peace to console their sad hearts.
