Carol always had Easter eggs to hand out for anyone who popped in on Good Friday. So thoughtful
I can't say enough about her thoughtfulness. She remembered many in so many ways, I can't even begin to mention all the hows and whens. I will miss her visits to Shoreline Drive on our bench and I know many others will too!

I am so sorry to hear of Carols passing. She was such a funny crazy lady. We used to joke that we only saw each other in parking lots. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her wonderful family. She was such a family person that was apparent to everyone. Great memories from Janice and Ray Hallett.

Christopher and Carrie,

I was very sorry and saddened to hear about your Mom. I have many memories of bowling, playing canasta and playing other games with her. May your memories bring you comfort and help you through this difficult time. Know that she will live on in your hearts and in all of you.
