    Walt, Dale, Marilyn,Kathy and Linda Lou, My deepest sympathies in the loss of Carol. She was a flawless beauty who never aged. She looked the same now as she did while we were growing up across the road. I remember babysitting for you kids and starting to feel old when you grew up and went off to lead your own lives. I also remember her beautiful vegetable garden. She was always present outside doing things around the house while Walt puttered in his garage. A great neighbor and definite asset to the Church. May God bless and comfort all of you as journey down the path of loss and healing.

    To Walt, Dale, Marilyn, Kathy, and Linda.

    My heart goes out to all of you!

    Carol was a great instrument in raising her children and grandchildren. Her smile lit up the room. I learned a lot from Carol, as she was so kind! Heaven just received an angle to use many of her talents.

    I appreciate all the times she let us bring the huge big Sheepdog into their home….never complaining!

    Remembering all the greatness.
    Rest dear Carol.
