I am very sorry to hear about Carol's passing. Carol played piano for Christ United Methodist Church on several occasions in 2013. Members of our church contacted her during her battle with cancer. She had faith in God and she loved her family and spoke of her children and grandchildren often. She will be remembered by Christ United Methodist Church.

Nancy, Lois and the rest of the family,

We enjoyed being Eastern Star members with Carol. She was such a joy to be around and she was always the first in line to volunteer. Bless you and your familiy.

I am honored to have known Carol . Arland introduced me to her a little over 3 years ago and I had the great pleasure to get to know her while they dropped off their precious dog Andy to be groomed. She was such a strong individual and I always had her on my mind. Breaks my heart to hear she is gone. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Nancy, and the rest of the family: I felt so bad at the word of Carol's passing. I wasn't expecting it so soon. It was a pleasure having her for a neighbor and I'm glad Nancy was able to move in and take her place when she married and moved. She was so happy in her new marriage and I'm happy for that. She will be missed. Dorothy

So sorry for the family. It seems like time is creeping up on all of us. We haven't been over 70 miles from Kennett in many years so I know you'll understand our absence. You will all be in our prayers though.

My head is having difficulty wrapping around the fact that Aunt Carol is gone but my heart is heavy with the pain of knowing she is. I know she is having a great time being promoted to our heavenly Father's kingdom, but I feel selfish and wanted her to stay. I only had 7 1/2 years to know her and treasure every memory. She was a tough bird with a gentle heart. Until we meet again...
