Carol was my friend from first grade in Greensboro. She had the best birthday parties ever! When my husband and I were in St. Louis, she came to visit us at our hotel, and we had a very nice visit. I was so sorry to hear of her passing. I have such wonderful memories of her!

Carol was always a bright light at Dolan. We left Dolan with our Mother, Martha, 17 months ago but I will never forget knowing Carol. She was kind, funny, and joyous.
