Condolence & Memory Journal

So many find memories of Aunt Carol. It was so much fun at sleep overs as children and visiting and taking tours of Georgia on our way to or from Florida in adult years... never ending enjoyment with the whole family. Aunt Carol and mom were so close as sisters and we the children have been blessed.

Such fond memories growing up as kids with Aunt Carol. Since Mom and her were sisters, and us kids were close in ages we were always doing things together. Aunt Carol and Uncle Don would host us on our trips to and from Florida. They even helped Ray and I move to our new home in Florida. So many fun times playing board games or just catching up and visiting. Family was very important to Aunt Carol and our mom and we are so blessed to have these fun memories and will hold them close in our hearts. Love and prayers to our family and most importantly to Aunt Carol’s children, grandchildren and great grand children as they were so special to her.
