What can you say about such a fine Christian woman. She was always helping people, and always trying to get closer to the Lord. My Aunt Carol had such a soothing voice, and was so easy to talk to, and she didn’t pass judgement. She just listened and tried to help, just by talking. I am going to miss her voice♡. RIP, Aunt Carol. You will truely be missed. Until we meet again. Your niece, Laurie.
