  • Kate, Sarah, Ruth, and all of Carol’s family,
    I’m so sorry to just now read of your mother’s death, less than two months after our mom’s death. Your mom was a good friend to Mom, and she leaves so many special memories. I remember special times of playing at your house— especially the old house by Waldo Village Hall — as well as at our house. And what a survivor and role model your mom was over the years — she will always inspire me. Now she is with her sons and husband again, and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

  • Kate, Sarah, Ruth, and all of Carol’s family,
    I’m so sorry to hear about your mom’s death. She had such a kind spirit. And her smile lit up a room. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • We are sorry for your loss. Your mother was a wonderful and kind. I enjoyed being with you and your mom back in those days. May your memories sustain you at this time.

    The Dorton’s

  • So sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. Remember the good times and cherish the memories. I remember seeing your mom and dad at the Heimlich reunions in our younger days. Went to your dad as a vet. May God watch over all of you.
