    Such a sweet and unique Soul. I can still see her smile and hear her fabulous laugh. I shall always remember her being the sweetest friend, cousin, wife, daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and Human being on this here planet. It is so true, that the good, do die young. Rest with heavenly peace Carol. John, we will join her before you know it. Until then remember her as I do. or better yet, as you do!

    It doesn’t make sense to loose your wife and mother, ever! I am so sorry you have to live with the tremendous heartache, it never gets easier but each day gets a little better.
    I am praying for each of you!
    Always remember the good memories and laugh at the bad. Talk about her as often as you can and need to. Believe me, it helps!
    I find comfort in knowing she’s (my Mom) not with me but always watching over all of us. Look for the little signs and you will find her. ?

    Our prayers are with your family.
