Carol and I spent many days and hours cross-stitching and chatting and drinking coffee waiting for our children to get home from school. She really was an amazing person full of life and a book full of stories on life to prove it. She and Delmas loved each other very much. Carol loved her children and step children and loved to tell stories of her grandchildren. I will miss her very much. God Bless each and everyone of you. Jacki, she loved you so much and was really very happy that you have found love and happiness in your life with Bob and your children. She truly loved you so very deeply. I hope that love will continue to comfort you as you grieve her passing. Love you, Momma Jo

So sorry to hear about Carol. Rely on Almighty God because he is near to those that are broken at heart and will provide you with the strength to continue on.

I will always have the fond memories of Carol Ann's and my mother's' fun-loving friendship. They were quite the pair when they were together and I remember many laughs and silly times. Rest easy now, Carol, next to your beloved Delmas.

1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
Ecclesiastes 3:1-4
Jacki and family,
We were so sorry to hear about Carol's passing and want you to know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers.
Elaine, Andrew, Daniel, Chris and Ben Jones
