    Praying for God’s peace and comfort to your family as your mother finds it in her heavenly home. Your mom was a dear friend to my mom for over 50 years and I’d like to think my mom will meet her and hug her, like we always did. I enjoyed our opportunities to share time together. She is an amazing woman and we were honored to have her in our lives.

    My sincere condolences to Carol’s family. My memories of Carol were when she and Bill and Steve visited my parents, Sy and Janet Turbes, in Minnesota. I would babysit Steve at a fancy hotel where Bill and Carol attended business convention activities. Carol was so kind and always dressed stylishly. I thought she was so beautiful.
