Auntie Carol will be greatly missed... 2007 is when I met Auntie when my now husband introduced us together. Auntie gave the best hug and makes you feel like you are family.
Heaven has welcomed another Angel to watch over the rest of us. God Bless you Auntie, George and family.

Aunt Carol married our Dad's brother, George Michael! Our Mom said, "Carol was the best thing that ever happened to Uncle George!" Aunt Carol always had a smile and would ask you the moment you walked in the room, "How are you doing Honey?" She loved her sons , so proud of Rick and Randy and their families, her eyes would light up anytime she shared a story about them. We were blessed by her smile, her twinkling eyes and welcoming hugs. She will be greatly missed! THANK YOU Aunt Carol for loving our Uncle George so well! We will miss you!
