    To the family of Carol, what a wonderful lady to work with, as one who cared about helping those in the community. Those of us who work with Living Hope want you to know how appreciative we are of the hours Carol spent helping out. She, along with Bob before that will always be remembered as servants who wanted others’ lives to be better. Their efforts have contributed to the success of Living Hope. Peace and blessing.
