Dear Jerry, Christopher, Alyson:

I do not have adequate words to express my profound sadness at the loss of our Carol. There are so many memories. But, I have a recurring picture of Carol in Heaven making everything warm, comfortable and inviting, just as she did here on earth. I will miss her. My love to all of you.

Dear Jerry & Family,
Carol was so special to us, too. We could always count on her to make us laugh and to share her red licorice with us. We know she is resting peacefully in the arms of our Lord. May that same peace come to you in time.

Carol had the rare gifts of sparkle and smiles, and she shared them with abandon. All of us who were fortunate enough to have Carol as a friend will always remember her smiles and kindness and hopefully pass them on in her honor. Our deepest sympathy to Jerry and her children. She loved all of you like crazy!

My heart goes out to the family during this most difficult time, for your deep loss. May you find comfort in prayer and gain strength knowing that God "hears your prayers - Jeremiah 29:12, 13 and that he feels your deepest pain - Zechariah 2:8

Deepest sympathy
