    Norma & I were truly saddened to hear of Carol’s passing. Having been married for >40 yrs. ourselves, I realize there are no words to fill the void of loosing the best friend you ever had in this life, and a loving & always smiling & supportive mother, grandmother, great-grandmother. God alone can love her more than you, and has already received her into the hands of total Love & forgiveness, and will hold her heart there for you for the milliseconds (in God’s time) until you join her at your appointed time. But, I pray that you & your family will feel the thoughts of comfort cradled for you in the hearts of your Classmates & Friends forever.

    Mike and Family,

    Mike, I remember in the year 2000 when my father passed away, someone came up to me at the funeral home one
    evening and said. Jimmy, as much as your Dad loved your Mom, his children and the grandbabies and all his friends
    “The place he’s at now he wouldn’t come back even if he could.” Those words stuck with me and still today help me
    when I lose someone close to me. I hope they help you Brother, with the loss of your precious Carol.
