Dear Family, I was sorry to hear of Carols passing. We lived neighbors when your parents lived on Pearl Street and your Dad had Herb's TV Repair there and out west of town. I recently visited with Carol while we were shopping. She always had a ready smile and a warm "Hello". I am sorry you lost her but she is closer then you think.

Jerry and family, I am sorry to hear of your mother's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I will miss running into her when I was shopping....such a funny lady to visit with. God Bless.
So sorry for your loss. Carol, Iola, Dorothy, Ruth and Jean are having coffee in heaven today. Probably giving Victor, Dennis, Leroy and Russell a run for their money. We will meet them again when our time on earth is done.
