I will never forget being in Carol and David's wedding.  Irene Reichert passed  a few weeks ago and I believe they knew each other.  Well now she is with Edith and Harold two of the most wonderful people one could have had as neighbors growing up!  Take care everyone our thoughts and prayers are with you!  Rhonda, Roz & Doug

Cousin Carol

Carol was one of God's most special people. You could count on her to always be kind and have a positive attitude. Our paths didn't cross often enough but it was always a good day when it did. She will be sorely missed. :-(
