Paul and Jim, our condolences on your mother's passing. Carol was always ready with a smile or a laugh. I remember your parents getting together with my parents for cards on summer evenings in the back yard on Sixth Street. There were always a lot of laughs. I remember her absolute delight when the three of you boys were infants and toddlers. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see much of Carol after I married and moved away, but she always had a special place in my heart right next to my favorite Uncle Joe, your dad. Sherry and Todd Bader

What a great picture, showing what I remember most, her great smile . She had the smile that said tell me more! Always interesting to talk to, wanting to know what was happening. She gave me my first babysitting job for 2 very rambunctious boys (before Jim). Sorry we won’t be there with hugs but know our hearts are with you guys.
