    I can hardly stand this. she was probably one of the classiest to ever walk the streets of Maysville. A beautiful kind soul. Not many like her. Carol I will always remember how good you were to our families during our losses. We even have a chuckle about you and Kathy delivering our flowers. I can still see you 2 laughing so hard.

    My heart is sad to hear of the passing of my beautiful Cousin Carol. I will always remember Carol for her soft, kind, gentle and so sweet and loving spirit she had, for her class and elegance that she adorned and for her beautiful smile that she had all the time. She reminded me so much of Aunt Vinnie in many ways of life!! I send my prayers and deepest sympathy to you Pamela & Kendall, Elizabeth, Mary, Nancy, Donna and to your families as well as to the Teter family. Our family has lost an earthly jewel, but God Almighty has received an Angelic Angel returning home to him in his heavenly kingdom. You will be so dearly missed Carol, but never forgotten! I can still hear your sweet soft voice in my ears and see your precious loving smile on your face. My love, thoughts, prayers and condolences are being sent to the family and may we know Carol is healed and well now resting in God’s loving arms. Love, Cousin Corinne Young

    My prayers are with her family both biological and her church. We will miss her. She was such a comfort after our Olivia passed in 2021. She is rejoicing with her Savior now. ❤️
