Scott, I'm sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I really miss the days at IGC when our parents would shoot the breeze waiting for us to get off work.

Scott and Michelle, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I was your neighbor on Alice Kay.
I use to see your Mom walking with the Grandkids and she was so proud of her kids and grandkids. I know she will be greatly missed.

I was so sorry and sad to hear of Carole's passing. I didn't know her well, but what I did know was she was sweet and always nice, and spoke lovingly of her children and grandchildren. I wish I got to know her better. Praying for your family and may she now rest in peace. Neighbor, Teresa and Jim Cowles

Carole was my friend from high school days at PRP. When we chatted at our recent 50th reunion I was reminded of what a delightful person she was. I will miss Carole but will keep my fond memories of her. My sincere sympathy to her family.

Scott & Michelle, I worked with Carole for over 30 years at DuPont. She literally "ran" the place, but her family was the most important thing to her. You have my deepest sympathy and prayers.

This is just one of the greatest loss of a co-worker that I can remember. She helped me so much during my career at DuPont. I know her and Elmer are having a wonderful reunion.
