My sympathy to each of you upon hearing that Carol passed away. Our families were friends all of my life, beginning in Sunday School, continuing through school years and youth group. Our mothers worked in the church together. When Carol served the lunch at Ladies Aid or Circle, we knew we were in for a tasty treat! When she led in devotions and prayer, her faith was evident. After my mom moved to Maryland she would call Carol from time to time and they would have a "telephone visit". There are tears for those of us who remain on earth, yet what a glorious time in heaven to see Jesus face to face. I'm sure my mom (Swanee) was part of the welcoming committee! I'll be with you in spirit during the funeral on Friday. Love in Christ, Carol Rasmussen Squires
