Rick, Cheryl, Kathy, Phil, Colleen, Ron, and Sandy: Carole was a very special person. Our talks & visits were instrumental in adapting to married life. Carole was so patient and kind. Even though I hadn’t seen her in years, I always knew she was my friend.
Nice picture and you were blessed to call her mom!
I love you all!

Rick ,Cheryl, Kathy, Colleen, Ron you are all in my thoughts and in my prayers. Hang onto the loving memories of your mother.

Carole was a very loving and generous sister in law. She will be missed by her loved ones. I truly want to be there for her service, however with Covid19, was discouraged to do so. My sincere condolences to the family. Her brother Bill and my dear husband preceded her 3 months ago. All the brothers and sisters are together now rejoicing in heaven. May God comfort and give peace to those who are grieving this loss.
