Mrs. Carol was such a light to any room. She shared many recipes with me many years ago that I still us today. She taught the love of the Lord, not only through speaking but by the way she lived her life. She set an example! I have not seen her in many years, but I know she meet those pearly gates with a big smile! Many prayers will be lifted up for the family.
