Aunt Carol was an amazing woman, She was a second mother to so many people. Every time I visited she made me feel so special and I will never forget that. I know she’s flying high with uncle bill and visiting with family. But the first thing she done was kiss Jesus! She is rejoicing in him. I will miss her very much.
