I am devastated to hear about Carol's passing. I remember her from the Baptist Church in Millerstown. She was an amazing women to me. My heart misses her. Even though I have not seen her since my husband passed away I remember her being there. I do not remember much more about that day. So long Carol. We will meet again someday in the land of our ancestors.

Carol's sudden death brought tears, and an ache in my heart. Bill & I are praying for you, Phil, and your family. Carol's life touched mine through our kids' activities. We watched our children grow up and spent countless hours not only participating, but praying together for them. Carol had a quiet strength that enabled her to face problems with solutions and determination. Her girls were blessed to call her, Mom. Her talents touched so many and she is already missed. Her absence from us brings pain, but she is more alive now and in the presence of her Savior Jesus Christ. As a member of the, Praise Him Singers, she enjoyed using her talented voice for her Savior's glory and today she's still singing His Praise in heaven. We miss you, Carol, but we will see you again. That is His promise.
