My dearest Gran,
Life will never be the same without you. I am so thankful for our precious time together. I don't know that I have ever met a more loving and kind soul. Thank you for all of the late night chats, the spontaneous dinner dates, the life lessons, the church mornings and the vacations. You helped shape me into the woman I am today and I am so grateful! Although my heart is broken, I take comfort in knowing you are with grandpa and Uncle Tracy. I will sure miss you. I love you!

So sorry to hear of Carol's passing. My son James loved her like a grandmother and she was so sweet to him. James passed away last Sept but he was always talking about Carol. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Dorothy Nelson
