Words cannot express how saddened I was to hear of Ms. Carol's passing. I know you will miss her deeply. So sorry Lamont and I couldn't make it to her service, but we were out of town. Please know our prayers and thoughts are with you and let us know if there is anything we may do for you.

Bill,
My heart is breaking for you and your family. Carol was such a pistol and such a hoot, I will really miss our chats on my "drive by" visits with the pup. I know Mom and Dad will also miss her at the West Neck Sip n Savors.
I told Carol today that I would keep up my "drive by" visits to check on you and Annie May.
You have a lot of people that love you and your family.
Cindy, Joe, Kay and Bobo Edwards

Mr. Bill I am so sorry to hear about Carol's passing. I had the opportunity to meet her several months ago at S&W and take a picture of you too. She was such a sweet lovely lady and glad you both had the opportunity to see the football game on Sunday.

Take care of you and may God bless you during this difficult time.
