I met Carol in 2010 at Ligonier Ministries....Two things I noticed about her....one she was smart..two she spoke her mind...she also could be very funny at times....even though she had lost loved ones...endured many health issues..her faith in god never waivered...she was always concerned about others and their well being....I got to know Carol on a personal level..we were neighbors and lived close to each other..movie nights were a regular at her house....she would pick me up when my car was in the shop for work to and from.....she was very kind to me and always concerned about my well being...I made her homemade almond poppy seed cookies for her kindness...I gave them to her at work..BAD MISTAKE....before the night had ended they were almost gone..I said Carol ...I did make them for you ..you know! She wanted all her co workers to have one...She had a gift of generosity....Her heart overflowed with it....Carol..Jackie..and myself all lost our sons to untimely deaths but now Carol you have been reunited with yours....I will never forget you and your kindness to me...Until I see you again..Your friend..Marilyn

Dawn, your mother and you have the best laugh I’ve ever heard! It’s the kind of laugh that fills the room with happiness.

I will never forget the imagine of the two of you both wiping tears of joy out of your eyes at your sleep over birthday party I went to all those years ago. I remember going home and telling my mom I had met the coolest mom ever because of all the made up games she had planned and played with us.

There is one game in particular I have carried on over the years with my own children. Your mother filled paper bags with random objects. We all sat in a circle and she handed out the bags and we had to come up with a skit using the objects and everyone else had to guess what we were doing. The best part was some of the things we didn’t even know what they were. I got a manual egg beater (I didn’t even know what it was) and a multicolored beanie hat with a spinning propeller on it. I pretended to “ride it like a bicycle” and to be a clown in the circus juggling.

The magic your Mother created and the space she gave us to just be kids was just incredible!

Sending you all my love,
Karla

I met Carol back in 2010 when I started at Ligonier Ministers. She took me under her wing and always encouraged me when I was having trouble getting partners. Our friendship went way beyond work. We shared countless hours of sharing meals, ideas , laughter and our fun movie nights. She always gave me advice when I asked for it. I will treasure her friendship as long as I live. I will miss you dear friend and carry you in my heart ❤️ pocket until we meet again. Thank you for being you!!!
Love, Jackie

We were Carol’s other family. When I would think I could no longer do something I would think of Carol and be encouraged by her strength and determination.

Carol trained me when I started at Ligonier. She was so authoritative and presented the ministry so well that I thought. .."who could say no to her"...the only response would be "how do I sign up."
I wanted to be like Carol when I "grew up."

But with that commanding presentation she was fun, loving and you wanted to be on team with her.

Action Jackson was her nickname.

I met Carol at the Christian help Centercentre way over 10 years ago and came to know her more when we worked together at ligonier ministries.
Carol was always gracious, generous, kind, and so enjoyed the group movie nights at her home, and was always ready to offer hospitality to so many. She had and has a special place in my life.,..I can almost hear her say "sit down, make yourself comfortable". . that's who she was...wanting to make people comfortable. There is a reunion in Heaven for her and that's where I will see her again. With Love and in His Grace, Jenn.
