Such a beautiful picture of Carol! That’s exactly how I will always remember her. She was a wonderful person and loved by so many people. I enjoyed working with Carol when Living Hope first started. We had some wonderful talks and experiences. She will be missed by all who knew her; and warmly received into the loving arms of God.
