Dear John and Family, it is with much sorrow that I learned only recently of Carol's passing. The wonderful photo that accompanies this Guest Book is a true reflection of her lively, lovely and welcoming presence. That she will be deeply missed by her family, friends and all who knew her is most understandable. Our sympathy and prayers are with John and the family at this time. Sincerely, Eleanor & Tom Klosterman

Dear John, Janet & Susan, I was so saddened as I read the notice of Carol's death today. We had such great times working so hard together behind the scenes at AASWG Board meetings/conferences. Carol was so organized, thoughtful in her manner and cheerful even as chaos seemed to be descending upon us! She brought out the best in us as we looked to her shining example of how to behave graciously, generously but firmly 'getting the job done'. I agree with all others who remember her smile and her laughter and said that Heaven is certainly benefiting, I am sure, from all of her gifts. I hope the loving memories of your life together will sustain you through your grief and loss Love, Bonnie Engelhardt, LICSW

Dear John and family,
I was so very saddened to hear of Carol's passing. Carol was one of the first people I met (along with John) so many years ago as I began attending AASWG symposia. Carol's presence was like a beautiful beacon of light and warmth as she welcomed everyone in the same manner -- gracious, friendly, and always with a gorgeous smile. She was a remarkable woman and as I read the beautiful obituary, I realized that she contributed to society in so very many ways. John, you and Carol were a dynamic duo throughout your marriage and the evidence of your service was felt in so many communities. Carol's passion for music, along with her amazing skills, must have brought so much pleasure to so many people. Carol was so vitally interested in others and this will be one of my enduring memories.
With heartfelt condolences,

Dear John and family,
It is so sad. Several of us have a very long history with Carol and I knew her from Day 1 of the Group Work Association. Carol was such a doll. She was cheerful and used her upbeat personality to engage us and make us feel connected. Moreover, the gift of perseverance and work ethic she possessed as a trained musician, she gave to our association with her enduring hard work.

I found the obituary to be so revealing. She and in her marriage to John, both of you, represent a unique American tradition that is not quite northeastern, which I am more used to. She represented the upstanding church related American progressivism whose members found it important to help people in urban industrial areas all over Midwestern states like Ohio, Michigan, Illinois. A woman in her 80s, she had to have experienced the major migration of southern Blacks to her state as well as the immigration of Europeans to work in factories.

The first Symposium held in Akron was in the old Quaker Oats factory. A beautiful surprise that the hotel WAS the factory. Luckily it had not been torn down.

What a sad loss for you John and for the family. We were all so fortunate to have been in the Association with Carol.
