Rest in peace Carol. Your smile and laugh were infectious. We loved talking to you every summer at Twilight Hollow Girl Scout camp. We visited every night during camp until after Midnight while we put the camp away. Your advice to the new parents at camp to "water your children" so they didn't have to come see you has stayed with us and is repeated at each parent meeting. No secret why the girls wanted to come see you though ... who wouldn't want to be around such a warm, caring, and loving person. It is an honor to have known you. Our thoughts and prayers are with Allen and the rest of your family. Lisa and Boyd Gackle Boyd Gackle, April 29, 2011 I knew of Carol from church, but one of the first memories I have of Carol was seeing her at a Boy Scout Camp. There weren't too many moms, like Carol and me there with their Boy Scouts. I really admired her for doing that for so long with her son. Then we got to be better friends and I saw how much she loved teaching children's Bible Class. She gave a lot to young people. Then we went on Ladies Retreats together and our hubby's played golf and we did a lot of things as couples with the Oldhams and the Conleys. One of our traditions was going out on New Year's Eve which we had been doing since about 1995. We had some fun times, especially the time that we did a Murder Mystery game. Carol dressed up as her character, the Prom Queen, and really played the part. We are so glad that we also got to spend this last New Year's Eve with Carol. We had a nice dinner out and after went to the Oldhams and played games. We played Blockus. She looked very pretty in her black fur jacket and hat. That will always be a special memory. And then visiting her a few days before the bone marrow transplant. I brought her lots of books and we talked about our favorite authors. She was ready to begin a new life. And she has - in the arms of Jesus. Love, Steve and Troie Burch Steve and Troie Burch, February 9, 2011 Alan and Tamara, I am saddened to hear of your loss of your wife and mom, a beautiful Christian woman. My prayers are for your comfort and peace during this difficult time; may you be surrounded by all those that were the recipients of Carol's warmth and friendship.

Sis.Snell Elaine Powell-Snell, February 8, 2011 I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Carol from scouts when Ryan was active. She was always so sweet and wonderful. She was just a joy to be around. I pray that God's presence surrounds you as you navigate thru these difficult times. My prayers are with you. Debbie Rupert, February 7, 2011
