I will remember my Aunt Carol as the beautiful, sweet, and loving lady of the south. Carol had that smile and laughter that could just make you happy. I remember when visiting Mom's house as a girl, I loved looking at Aunt Carol's wedding portrait on the wall. I thought she was the most beautiful bride ever! I would always want to peek at her gown that Mom still kept in the closet. It was what a young girls dreams are made of. David and Carol were full of love and laughter. They not only loved each other, they enjoyed each other. I'm happy to imagine them together again. I imagine Aunt Carol filling heaven with her beautiful voice. Just glorious! I celebrate Carol's life well lived and blessed because she deserved it.

A great friendship began in 1974 when the Hutto' s moved to Glenhill Drive. We were in the process of moving into our home when Ann stopped by to welcome us to the greatest neighborhood. We became great friends with other neighbors and met once a month for th e Glenhill Gang Bridge Group. We always had cards available if anyone wanted to play. We played a lot of tennis back then and when your folks moved to Oklahoma, your mom would come for a visit and stay with us. I never will forgeat your mom liked a diet Dr. Pepper for breakfast. Her visits always included ladies tennis matches.
We were so happy when you moved back to our area. Your mom and dad were an integral part of our lives. Years have gone by since the Glenhill days, but I remember your folks with lots of love and memories.
David and Laura I am so very sorry for your loss. I understand she wanted to be with Dave and now she is. Ann had the most infectious laugh and smile. She was quite a gal.
Fondly, Susan Hutto Godley
