I had the honor and joy of knowing Carol over 50+ Years. We shared times while our children were growing up, times at Rolling Hills Pres. Church in their young married couples groups, Sunday school meetings, prayer groups, and just a friendly phone call. Carol introduced me to PEO where I received much support and love. I attended Stanley Presbyterian church after moving away from OP for about 10 years and one of the first persons I saw was Carol. We reconnect as though it was yesterday.. We were in a prayer group that met weekly in my home for many years. Sharing and praying together through Christ is the ultimate of friendship. Carol was there for me through many challenges including illness and loss. She was always a phone call away. Her last visit she gave me some of her yarn to knit an throw blanket. Her sweet smile and caring actions will always be remembered. I frequently think of her and miss her deeply. I couldn't write anything when she passed. It was a blessing and pure joy to have shared a small part of her life. Her spirit will be with me forever until we meet again. God's Blessings and grace be with her family, especially on this anniversary of her passing.

On my calendar, Dec. 21 is Carol's name. Bob & I remember that she always sent him a card on his birthday, Dec. 5. She said that Dec. birthdays always are ignored because of Christmas. She never wanted to forget him. We won't forget Carol on her birthday date either. She will be remembered in the spirit of the way she lived her life with kindness.

Carol loved her Bible, but most of all she lived her Bible. On Oct. 8, I went to Gal. 5:22,23, Fruit of the Spirit. She taught that Bible lesson to the PC of Stanley Circle. She made us all book marks with that Bible verse. "The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control...."I think of those words & remember Carol. She embodied them. I miss her everyday. Love & prayers to John & her family

When I think of Carol, I think of class. She was always so put together no matter what. In the midst of her illness, she was always optimistic and bright. Even when I surprised her at the door and she apologized for her appearance she looked fabulous in her scarf on her head and sweet smile. I will truly miss the light that she shined on us all.

Although I knew Carol but a short time, I felt like I knew her for years. Her generous, caring and selfless disposition drew me to her instantly. Her vivaciousness for life was evident in everything she did from talking about flowers to knitting an afghan for a friend. She is truly the most courageous and inspirational woman I have ever met and she will sorely be missed. My dear, beautiful Carol, you will always be in my heart.
