I went to school with Carol Baker in Bourbon, Mo. and remember her well and watch Ralph play ball at Bourbon, in the summer time. Also I played softball with Ralph's three sisters at Bourbon. We will miss her. Sheila Tyree Wood

Lucy I can't believe after all these years I never actually met your mom. She had to ba amazing considering how many kids she had. Remember all the good times. My mother died last year so I know how hard it can be. I'm just a phone call away and don't hesitate to make that call. Prayers for you and your family.

I am so very sorry to hear about Carol passing away. She was an amazing, kind, loving woman.
I know that no words can take away the pain of this loss. But knowing she is not in any more pain and is with our heavenly father & the man that she loved so dearly should ease the pain just a little.
I am truly, deeply sorry for the loss of Grandma. I am glad that I had the pleasure of knowing her.
I will be keeping you all in my prayers. Carol Ann, you especially.
Love and prayers.
