What a gift to all she met...
On behalf of our family, we will always remember Carol's kind smile, her joy that sourced not only her laughter but others' as well, and her caring interest . Though we only saw Carol at the reunion and a few random other times through the year(s), it was as if you could pick up where we left off.. as if we just saw each other yesterday. She sang heartily for her Lord [and to us :-)] and the encouragement of others the message of love and faith. Carol will be missed here and welcomed "home". ~Alan Smith with Joni, Tami, Greg and Lori (Lorraine's Children.)
We will miss Carol for a while.
Carol was always a joy to be around. She almost always had a smile on her face, and she always made you feel important when you talked with her. The last few years without Art were difficult for her, but she always shared memories of Art and knew she would be reunited with him after she passed from this world into the next. I know she and Art are now rejoicing in the presence of the Lord Jesus, and some day all of us who are brothers and sisters in Christ will see them both again. It will be great to give them both a big hug and share a laugh with them.
Warm cinnamon rolls
Carol and Art were great neighbors of ours for about 15 years in Bethlehem. I used to love when Carol would knock on our back door and come in to visit; we didn't get many pop in visitors as we were new to the area, so I loved when she did. One Saturday morning she brought a pan of warm cinnamon rolls that she had just taken out of the oven. What a treat that was as I didn't have time for making that sort of thing at that time in my life. We Appreciated Carol and Art inviting us to join them and Wendy, Mark, Nicole and Kevin for occasional holidays as we didn't have family in the area. They were kind, fun and generous neighbors and were so good to our kids. Carol gave our daughter, Jill, the fall sweatshirt in the pic below. We'll always treasure the memories! R.I.P Carol (& Art).
