    So sorry to hear of this loss. Some years ago in the 70’s Carol played softball with our team “Pit Barbecue”. She was an outstanding outfielder and a very beautiful person. We shared many good times together. We are so sorry we did not hear of her passing until Sunday and didn’t know of the funeral on Monday. To the family, May God continue to comfort and keep you.
