    My heart goes out to Carol's family. We grew up directly across the street, and then directly next door to each other. She was a trusted neighbor who put me in charge of her children many times. I know she will be missed by many, but welcomed by those that have passed before her. Rest well Carol, in the palm of God's Hand ~
