Although I am a cousin I always considered Larry and Carol as uncle and aunt for as long as I can remember. Carol was always super sweet and always welcoming. Jill and I will miss her deeply. God Bless.

Larry and family there are no words I am sure that could totally comfort you at this time. Carol was one of the sweetest people that I will ever know. The neighborhood will not be the same without her. I loved her stories about my dad when they were growing up as neighbors...she will be missed.
