  • Today we lay to rest one of the sweetest people I’ve ever known. Aunt Carol was big on family and always checked in on me, be it online watching my lives, in person, or over the phone. I already miss her so much! She was a light to this world and I never remember her being anything more than smiling and compassionate.

    Love you Aunt Carol! My prayers are with you Uncle Tim, and also with Carol’s family.



  • Carol, you will be dearly missed. You will forever be in our hearts.
    Love you always
