My Mother, Barbara Tolen , is at Trinity Grove where I met Carol. She was a bright star in my visits because she was always smiling and enjoyed conversation. I will miss visiting with her and her sweet family that visited her often. May God continue to bless your family and loved ones. God’s Peace.
