My heart is broken to hear of Carol’s passing. She not only worked for us but she was one of my very best friends. She was always encouraging to everyone. I thought the world of her and look forward to spending time with her in eternity.💗
O my dearest friend. sister in Christ! I remember the day you called me your sister. How sweet! You then explained how good it was that we are sisters in Christ! Carol and Jack made me feel so welcome in their life, their home. Carol had such a good listening ear, understanding heart of God. Before Carol I never had such a friend, a life long friend. My heart waits to meet Carol once again in Heaven. Through Carol on got to become friends with her dear daughter Jackie and Jackie's husband Larry. Jackie is just as precious as Carol. Also Jackie's friend Tammy so dear to my heart! I feel so blessed to know Carol's family, Patrick, Alice and George, Dr. Daniel, Jackie Brianchi and many others that have such wonderful beautiful, and loving hearts! Praise God!
