I was privileged to have Carol as a dear friend for 40 years. We laughed a lot and we cried a lot but some of the things that made her so special was she was kind, funny, generous and always there for everyone and was non-judgemental. My parents Lloyd and Marion traveled with Walt and Carol many years and made great memories. My children have everlasting memories visiting Saratoga every summer for many years. She is a very special person and will always be in our hearts of those who were fortunate enough that she touched. Love you my Friend. Donna

Carol was kind and thoughtful. She cared very much for Walt , Pam "Tee" and the entire family, and of course her cats and dogs. She was a great cook. I met Carol about 1993 at the Locust Grove and from that day on, we were like brother and sister.

Sis I am going to miss you very much

I also know when you met our Lord in heaven the first thing you asked him is, was the rummy game.
