I am ss sorry to hear about Carol passing. She was a wonderful mom to Ken and Kathy. Wonderful grandma to her grandkids. Everytime I saw her , she had a smile on her face because she was always doing stuff with her family. Such a wonderful family and I know she is with her Sam. Prayers for the family.

Carole was such a sweet gentle person. She always made you feel good when you were around her. To the family: my heart hurts with yours. I've walked the path of losing my mom so know the heartache that you feel. From now on, my thought has been and you know, 'we are one day closer to being together again.' Somehow that brings much comfort to me. Love you!!

Carol was always so kind and caring, she would light up any room that she entered. Her laugh was contagious. When her husband would make a joke with me she would just shake her head and say,SAM ! Her calm demeanor was the rock of her wonderful family. I will surely miss you Carol Pate, tell Sam I said hi. One day this ole crowd will be back together in heaven and there will be no more parting of ways.😢

I will always remember Carole as a kind , caring friend who loved and honored the Lord and her family. We met as a group of friends celebrating birthdays throughout the year. I was always hoping for a seat beside her because she made you feel so at ease! Great Mom, greatNanny, wonderful friend, I’m so glad for heaven!
