We thank everyone for your kind words and stories.

This outpouring of memories has been greatly healing at this most difficult time.
We will miss her devotion to her family, her friends and her Church.
Carol had a spark in her heart that was difficult to explain, but easy to see.
She needed to care. She needed to love. She needed to belong to something bigger than herself.
Her warmth, generosity and humor will live on in all who love her.

Lisa, Mark, Nick, Chelsea, Marcus and Jennifer

Marcus, Lisa & Family,

I was so saddened to read about Carol's passing. My parents considered her a dear friend, and those Fordson Class of '52 reunions they loved so much would never have happened without the efforts of Carol and Alex. Whenever I saw her, she was always kind and welcoming. I pray that your memories of her will soothe your sadness.

I have many wonderful memories of my dear cousin Carol. She was a very positive and cheerful person and whenever I saw her she had a smile on her face. We are a close family, even if we don’t see each other often now, we certainly did as children., and still love each other even though far apart.
My heart goes out to all her family, friends and loved ones.
You have now joined so many in the heavens above, and they now have received the glory of you. Another beautiful Angel!
My love and condolences to all who are grieving her loss.
Cousin Sandy ❤️🙏
