So sorry to learn of Carol's passing so late. Carol was not only a co-worker, she was a friend. I would smile and think of her every time I passed her house. This saddens me. My sincere condolences to Wanda and the rest of the family. Your mother was a wonderful lady. She lives on in the hearts of those who loved her.
