May fond memories and remembering Carol’s smile and laughter bring comfort during this time. I worked with Carol at the Oregon Convention Center for a few years and she was always so positive and upbeat and this energy helped uplift all around her. She was a strong woman who could help you look at the brighter side of things. Her presence will be greatly missed!

Donnie,
I have difficulty expressing how much I will miss Carol. I have known her since her pre teen years . We have shared many life experiences including being Sisters in Christ, travel partners, and much more. Recently, we were in touch only by phone, texts and/ or e mail. I will miss her very much.
May you be comforted by the Holy spirit as you adjust to her transitioning.
