  1. I am very sorry to learn of Carol’s passing. Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease. I watched my mother suffer from it. Carol was a wonderful classmate and I will miss her beautiful smile and good conversation at our class reunions. God bless you, Carol.

  2. Thank you Craig for your kind words and sharing a memory. She was an amazing woman, mom, grandmother and friend.

  3. May God Bless Carol, family, and all her loved ones. I can never remember her not smiling. I also remember her as being full of energy and indeed a wonderful classmate. Rest in peace dear Carol.

  4. I am so very sorry that I can not be there. I loved Carol very much and never thought of her being any less than my own grandma. Family, you are in my thoughts and prayers and will be especially as you go through the day tomorrow. She was always very good to me and I will miss her. I am glad though, that her fight with Alzheimer’s is finally over. May she be at peace and in the lords arms. Rest easy grandma Carol.

  5. Dale,
    I am so sorry to learn of Carol's passing I have meant to call or stop out for a couple years now and I waited too long ! Carol and yourself were among my favorite people and I miss our friendship. I will always remember Carol as an exceptionally beautiful person both inside and out she had an amazing and engaging personality and strength of character and honestly I am shocked of this tragic news ! Carol was only two years older than I so it definitely hits home ! Please take comfort in knowing you have many wonderful family members & friends who are here for you should you need an understanding or sympathetic ear or someone to lean on in the weeks & months ahead ! Take solace in knowing that Carol will be deeply missed and thought of with fondness and admiration. She hasn't left you for she will be with you always be with you to guide you to be your beacon of light and directional compass ! I hope you can come to believe that she is now in a peaceful place free of earthly torments perhaps going on ahead to ready a place for her loved ones ! May time work its magic and eventually ease your emptiness and pain never forgetting your amazing wife but finding an inner strength to forge ahead in her absence !
    I always had the highest respect and admiration for Carol and will sincerely miss her !
    I just learned of the arrangements today, Saturday in Wellsville or I would have come down I do apologize.
    Please accept my deepest condolences,
    Fred Rath
