I worked with Karol at Thrivent for years. She was a joy to be around with her positive attitude. She had lots of knowledge to share with her coworkers. She could be spunky and sassy when she wanted to be. My prayers go to her family. I know you will miss her.

I will miss you greatly Karol. We have been not only friends but relatives for 52 years. We spent a great deal of time together. We visited Nita’s Ranch as we called it for many years and shared many memories of you and the Reinke family. Hunting, fishing, cookouts, parties, going down to Red Banks, hitting the Rail and the Keg with the boys before during and after their military lives. When they wer on their tours of duty, you and I and Jeannie would have picnics at South Park. It always required a good blanket, a bottle of Strawberry Hill and a bag of Fun Yums. While we listened to all the great tunes on the boom box or radio. We celebrated each other’s important occasions and just our love and companionship. I will miss our adventures together and will take a special warm Sunday afternoon at our favorite spot at the park with a strawberry hill and Fun Yums to remember all our times together. Love you so much dear friend and cousin. Just happy that I was able to tell you that one Moore time before you left us. Rest softly my dear Sister. Love you from here to Heaven and back.
Love to Butch, Scott, John, Liz, Tucker and Elly. Know Karol watches over you and that she is always in our hearts and memories. Gods peace be with us all.
