    We were so sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. We only knew her for a short time but she was never anything less than gracious to us, even under trying circumstances. I have no doubt that the wonderful, warm feeling we got from the moment we first entered her home had a great deal to do with her spirit. My guess is that her family and close friends feel particularly blessed to have had her in their lives.
