Remembering back to the early 1980s and Fred Gang’s days, all of us swimming in the pool after work until 2:00 am or later. Those were some great memories! You were our West County Mom! Then, it was a pleasure to be able to work with you (and Neil) years later. Will miss you.

This is so heartbreaking. Carol was such a good and sweet woman. I will always embrace memories of going to her house to play as a child. She was always kind to all of us kids. I remember going camping with the families too. I never saw her with out a smile on her face and kind words. I will always remember her creativity as well. Your memories will always be a blessing to the world. Rest in perfect peace.
