Dear Kerry and Scott.....
I am so sorry about your Mom. I was really shocked to hear about her passing.
She was always so good to me when I was married to your uncle. We used to have some fun times back in our younger days. She was a great person. I am so sorry we did not stay in better touch in all these years.

Please know you are in my heart and prayers.

I have never known a finer, more formidable woman. Carole (mom) was one-of-a-kind, and being such great friends with Liz allowed us the privilege of experiencing her quirky (and very dry!) sense of humor, her spunk, and her unique personality. Carole was beautiful inside and out. She was an absolute pistol and Fred and I adored her!

There is no doubt she has now been welcomed into Heaven by Jesus and her beloved husband. And, Heaven just became a bit rowdier!

Fred and I have been truly blessed to be part of the Cochrane family for many decades. We feel grateful to know there is another angel in Heaven watching over us all.

Rest comfortably and eternally, Carole. You will be missed!❤️
