Dear Bob and Family, We extend our deepest sympathy in the loss of your precious loved one. We have many beautiful memories of Carole from your days in LaRue. We cherish the days of Sunday School Class, Bible Study and conversations of children & grandchildren. When Carole became ill many things changed but her pleasant, sweet, loving hugs and smile did not change. We always enjoyed seeing her smile.  May all be at peace  as you trust that Carole is  in her heavenly home, with no tears or pain and forever in the presence of Jesus.
