I loved eating my meals with Carol at Table 8. Even though I've only known her 8 months, the love she had for Fritz was truly an inspiration to me. I enjoyed hearing about her birthday "STEAK" celebrations. God bless you Carol.

Although we have only know Caroline (Carol) for about 15 years, we became close friends when her Lovely Daughter Carol Ann married our Son Brian Hanney. Amazingly enough, Brian shared the same birthday as Caroline. She was a caring and sweet person and we will miss her. Bill and Pat Hanney

Ah, what a terrific lady! Aunt Carol was my inspiration for aging. Being a blonde, I was always amazed over the years at how her hair stayed so blonde. I always said, "Blondes age gracefully," because I could never see any grey hair on Aunt Carol. One day I commented on how beautiful and blonde her hair was. She told me her secret - she dyed her hair!! What a laugh we had. So very special!! Love and prayers.
