    Our hearts are filled with sadness with the loss of our beautiful friend Carol. All of her family is in our prayers for strength in this time of mourning. Don is and Carol was such mentors to us through the years and will forever remember all the help they gave to bring us along. Love and peace be with you and May God hold her in His loving arms.

    The world should not have to lose someone so kind to other people. 56 plus years ago Carol made my wedding dress. At the time we were graduating from college and had no money just a promise of a job so Carol came to my rescue and made my dress. May the memories of Carol in your heart and mind bring
    comfort and peace. God bless the family and be with them at this sad time.
