Will miss Carole a dear friend for over 33 years. She would make me laugh cheer me up and most of all pray with me for her family and mine.
Always through good times and hard times she had joy and peace.

So blessed to have known her. She lived the life that she talked about. I know that she is reaping her rewards. For to live is Christ and to die is gain.
