Lee and family - We remember Carol for her ready laugh and good humor. Through mom and dad (Herb and Shirley) we shared the solid bond of friendship - always happy to visit in Arkansas or hear of the good times in Wisconsin. Carol was a special lady. We will miss her here but celebrate with the angels knowing she is spreading her good cheer in heaven. Bob and Susan Brisiel

Lee and family...I know Carol will be sorely missed by many, but I can just hear her laughing in heaven now as I remember the fun times that were shared with her here on earth. Please know my thoughts and prayers are surrounding you.

In the summer of '08, as we all sat in the RV in Sheboygan, Carol announced her diagnosis and asked for our prayers that progress would be slow. So the fight began and now she has received the Crown of Victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. The Crown that we, too, look forward to. Our prayers continue to be with all of you. Christ's love and ours! Betts and Fritz

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.I've enjoyed Carol since my kindergarten years at Cumberland School. She had a remarkable sense of humor, and a hugh heart for loving life itself.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you today as you celebrate the life of Aunt Carol. I will always remember her vibrant spirit and her laugh! She was a dear, dear aunt who touched my life in so many ways. I will never forget when she and Uncle Lee came to visit us in Houston when Ben was only 3 years old, and how they came to be with us when Ben went to heaven at 14. I can't wait to see her again someday! Love, Dawn

My heart is with you...Carol...your wife and mother will always hold in my heart space as "another mother," and someone who I always felt supported and cared for me, as a teen and as an adult. She touched my life and that of countless others. She will be remembered, always. Her faith and courage inspire. Thanks be to God for her life and her love. Today she sings with the angels! May God bring you peace and comfort! Love, Sue
