I was so sorry to hear of Carol's passing. She was a lovely person and neighbor. As others mentioned, she persevered a long time with her health issues. She seemed to take each day as it came and do her best. God bless her soul.

Carol lived one of the hardest lives of anyone I have known. Yet she persevered and not once turned her back on her God. In spite of it all she loved life and the simple pleasures it offered her. I will miss her friendship. Prayers for all her family.
