My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. All though I never met her I know she will be truly missed. Keep those memories close to your heart so she will always be with you. May God wrap his comforting arms around you during this difficult time.

Carol was a joyful person! I still remember her wholehearted laughter. She helped me fell at home in Clinton when God planted me here over 30 years ago. Prayers for peace and comfort to family and close friends.🙏🏻❤️🥰
