Larry and Carol, Jim and I are sorry to hear of Carol's passing. I know she hasn't been well, but it's still hard to lose a loved one and a member of your family. Take care and know that we are thinking of you.

Larry, Carol and Wanda:
It's such a sadness that I feel in Carol's passing. I never got the chance to meet her. I have been searching so very long for the family of Uncle Russell only to see that we have missed out on so very much. We send our love, thoughts and prayers and hope to hear from you soon.

God bless you,

Mr. & Mrs. William C. West (Vivian), son of Wilbur David West, Uncle Russell's brother.

Our lives were together during our high school days,
and reignited when talk started about our 50th reunion.
She was talented with her hands and that will remain
as a lasting tribute to one fine lady. Martha LaMacchia Wilson

May God Bless her family. I knew Carol when I lived in her building. I use to go visit my friends when I went into Ogdensburg every chance I could. She would be down stairs with Tazzy. Carol was a very kind hearted person and would do anything for any one. RIP Carol may we see each other again in heaven. Prayers are with the family and friends. Jackie Powers

Carol was an awesome artist and crafter!!!!!!! She did a painting that hangs in the lobby of the highrise in which she lived in. There is also a wreath that she did and that hangs over the mailboxes in the lobby as well. She was extremely talented!!!!!! I'm glad I had the pleasure of knowing a wonderful person!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Auntie will be missed, thoughts and prayers to the family. Just wanted to share a story when I took care of her in the hospital. Before she could go home she had to cook a meal for herself. Her response was "Does it look like I don't know how to cook?" She always stated what she thought! Glad that I grew up knowing this woman as my next door neighbor at camp. She will be missed by many.
