Carol was a dear, sweet lady that we knew for many years. We are missing both Carol and Ralph.
I will miss my baby sister a whole bunch. Even tho’ we live miles apart we kept in touch via email. Currently we were doing diamond painting together ‘apart’ sharing pics and info, I will definitely miss our frequent visits online. Love you sis, Twila
My dear friend, Carol.,
I can’t believe you are gone!
I will miss so many things that we shared the last ten years.
I will miss our emails, the times we went shopping, the times we went to lunch, sitting together in Church and SS. And mist of all the times we just sat in her living g room and visited! I will miss you more than you know, my forever friend!
