To me Carol was a true lady and a compassionate person. Bill and I will miss seeing her sitting on her back patio. I loved when we shared stories about our grandchildren and for Carol, her great grandchildren too.
Bill and I will have fond memories of Carol always and she will never be forgotten.
Rest In Peace our dear friend.
