    Caleb, I’m so sorry for the loss of your mom. Carol was a high school classmate of mine, and I always saw her as a bright light in this world. Her many social media posts of the delicious dishes she prepared and presented like beautiful artwork were admired by so many of us followers. She will be truly missed. Prayers are sent your way for comfort, strength and God’s Grace during your time of grief.

    I’m so sorry for loss, Caleb. Carol was a special person and she loved you so. I knew her all my life. We went through school and grew up going to church together. She will be missed! God’s blessings and comfort to you at this difficult time.

    Became friends with your mom in Jr High. She was genuine and a force to be reckoned with. Loved reconnecting over FB and waiting to see her next creation in the kitchen.
