    Anyone that knew Carol knew what an amazing woman she was. She was the first to lend a helping hand and the last one standing by your side. Carol and Thelma took my brother and I everywhere. Vacations, road trips, day trips,we did everything and anything together. Many laughs and tears along the way. I’m sure by now Carol and Thelma are arguing. Heaven just gained a beautiful angel.
