    I love you grandma. I will never forget margaritas and food network. Crazy lady next door and sending me out to be nosey! No matter what you could bring a grin or surprised laugh to everyone you met.

    I will never forget all the cups of coffee at Denny’s, yogurt at Cherry Berry, going to Church together, going to shows together and all the yahtzee games and when you got Zeva and how special you were to each other. I’ll see you in Heaven, my friend. Love you. Yvette Strick

    Carol you were such a gem! I remember the nights I spent the night with Jen when we were in high school. We always sat and talked. I am praying for your family and friends. Love y’all Jen and family.

    Mom, you were there when I needed you in good times and bad. You became a dear friend. I will miss you. I will always love you.

    Carol was a member of our Acrophobia team a long time ago and we considered ourselves twins because we shared a birthday. I did not realize she had passed. She even came to my house in Birmingham AL during one of her moves as she was passing through. Prayers for her family and friends. She was very special. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
