Such wonderful memories of time and laughs shared with Carol. From our woes with the computer to her beginning steps with scrapbooking and crafts with Alexandria to her making me promise to burn an awful skirt I owned; these are the fun things I remember about my friend. She will forever be in my heart. Blessings to her family.
