Everyone should have been so lucky to know grams. She taught me how to tie a ribbon, use scissors the right way to cut anything , to mix cake batter just right for cupcakes and most importantly she taught me how to love. She loved everyone so much. She cared so much for those around her and loved everyone so much. Her presence is missed now in many lives but she gets to be with God. That is a good place to be that is for sure. Thank you Grams for everything and I love you very much always.

Carol is my brothers wife of 49 yrs. I could not have chosen a better person for Johnny then the one he chose. She is the most kind, caring person ever. She is a perfect example of a mother and wife. I will miss her terribly. Sympathy to my brother, Johnny, and their girls, Amy and Lori. She was able to meet her grandchildren before passing. All this brought Carol to fruition. Prayers for all her family at this time. I'm so happy to have had her in my life.

I remember when I was about 8 or 9 years old Aunt Carol used to spend time with me. She would fix my hair up real pretty, and put just a touch of makeup on my face. She made me feel special and beautiful. She was such a kind soul, and I for one, will always have nothing but the fondest memories of her. She will be missed greatly. Lots of love to Uncle Johnny, Amy, and Lori. Praying for God to give you comfort during this time. TerriJane Walsh
