Hello, My name is Debbie Schlink but it used to be Pickering. I grew up with Uncle Dean and Aunt Carol even though there was no blood relationship whatsoever. My Dad, Bobby was a good friend of Uncle Dean and our families spend lot's of time together and I for one have fond memories. Please accept my condolences on behalf of the Pickering family. Mom is still with us but Dad passed in 1990 and little brother George passed in 2009. We wish you all well and our thoughts are with you.

I always appriciated all Carol had done for me. She opened her house when I needed a roof over my head. I highly admired her as a great mother,cook, and a very warm caring woman.
