Michael,Paul,Cindy and Eric, along with your families, we are truly sorry for your loss. Aunt Carol was a straight shooter with a big personality and a heart to match. She always made me laugh and then would look at me and say What? Can you imagine the reunion they're having in heaven? Cherish her in the many wonderful memories she created for us all. Love to all. Dennis, Chris,Colin and Madison.

Dear Michael, Cindy, Paul & Eric, Jan and I are so sorry for your loss. You know how we loved your mom and she was like our second mother growing up across the street from you on Botanical...those were the days. We always respected her for the way she and your dad cared for grandma and we feel the same about you for the way you cared for your mom. You gave her all the love, support and care she so greatly deserved, especially you Cindy. I know your mom was so very proud of you all. We will forever smile when recalling the Christmas dinners at our house when your mom and my dad would tell stories about when they grew up, they were priceless. We will keep you all in our prayers and I hope you all can find some comfort by remembering the fun times and special moments you shared with your mom in her lifetime. Love, Rich & Jan
