    I am sorry sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. Many many wonderful memories of her and the family since I first came to Greenville in 1980. She was a dedicated patient care advocate at UMH but more importantly she excelled at being a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. May she rest in peace.

    Aunt Carol has the biggest heart as was seen by the time she took to spend with so many, and we will treasure the time we were blessed to with her. We treasure our many gifts, hand-made and carefully chosen, that she gave to each of us. We will miss the special dinners she openly welcomed us to and her sweet hospitality. We love you, Aunt Carol. Gone too soon. We love you, Dawn and family!
