Dear Ken, Renee, and family, We only wish we would've know Carol many years ago when she had her good health and vibrancy. We've heard so much about the woman that raised a family, ran a busy office, and served others with an abundance of love. And yet the Carol we knew, though in a wheel chair and coping with adversity, exuded loving kindness and always had a smile to share. We've been touched by her beauty and by your incredible devotion to her. May a visual of Jesus embracing precious Carol in a firm bear hug as she stands before him whole, radiant, and beaming with joy bring you peace in the days and months ahead. Carol was cherished by so many and you are, too. We'll carry this heart ache with you. Much love.
