    A wonderful caring compassionate person and caregiver. I was always happy when knowing that we were scheduled to work together because out of the few caregivers that were compassionate, Carol was on the top of that list. She will be missed by many including myself. May God bless her soul as he welcomes her into Heaven. Blessings to you and your family Letha.
