  • I worked with Carol for many years out at
    Woodside Village. She was a good person
    And a mighty fine Aide. I enjoyed working
    With Carol. And when she decided to
    Retire, I really missed her. I was lucky to
    have called her my friend! RIP my friend
    Prayers and good thoughts to the family!

  • To Carol’s family,
    I am so very sorry for your loss, please accept my heartfelt condolences. I know words can’t resolve the deep pain of losing someone you love, but I wanted to share a thought with you that helped me through my own loss. John 5:28,29 speaks of a wonderful prospect to look forward to that will take place here on earth. I hope you too find the comfort you need to continue to endure.
