    So sorry for your loss..she is another flower in Gods bouquet! Carol was the best friend anyone could ask for! Always putting others first, always wanted to hear how your day was first, always there with a helping hand or words of encouragement. I looked up to her in hopes that one day I could be like her, so caring, strong, confident and independent! She is a friend that will be dearly missed! Was so nice to meet the family and visit, and what a wonderful family you are! My love, thoughts and prayers go out to you all!
