My sincere sympathy to Carols family.

My sincere sympathy to Carols family. She was a dear friend of mine and I have many happy memories of her when we worked together at Wedgewood Manor in Cavalier. I will miss visiting with her and every year she would be the first one that we received a Christmas card with a letter and a family picture from. We always enjoyed talking about the old days we had together. My thoughts and Prayers are with you and she will be deeply missed by many! She so loved her family and friends!

My prayers are with Carol and Family. I had such a good time working with her at Wedgewood manor years ago. I ran into her about 6 months ago at the grocery store and we got to chat for a little while. My condolences are with you all. Revel Sapa
