Not sure what to say?

Dear Sadie and family,
So very sorry to learn of Carol's sudden passing. It was a pleasure to know and work with Carol at Lake Wales High, but most importantly to have her and Bob as friends . Wonderful memories of our times together at the Tuesday Tasters. Carol always kept us up to date on membership and contact information. She gave me the honor of officiating at Bob's funeral. Her warm smile and kind heart will always be remembered. The world is a little less brighter without her....
