The loss of Carol is profound and devistating for so many. She was the glue and heart for our office at CDHS and for her family. Her warmth, smile and grace greeted us as we entered our offices for so many years. She gave much of herself to so many, making her loss all the more intense. We are so very thankful to have had her in our lives.
