Jack and Patti Mumford, June 27, 2017 Dear Tom, We are so very saddened to hear about Carole's death. We loved hearing her beautiful voice in our church choir at Mass. She was always happy and smiling. She greeted everyone with kind and loving words. We will miss her greatly. Our love, friendship, prayers, and sympathy are with you during this time of sadness. Sincerely, David and Mary Hundt David and Mary Hundt, June 27, 2017 Dear Carole, I will miss you dearly. I am so glad we met 20 years ago. Although we began our relationship as co-workers, we quickly became great friends. You were a hard worker and paid great attention to detail. Though working in a legal department can be stressful, we always found a way to laugh and "save the day." Through the years, you have been like a sister to me. I will never forget how you comforted me in my times of grief and sorrow. I will never forget your generous spirit and big smile. Even in this last extremely difficult month, you had a smile on your face and laughed at my stories. Thank you for the great memories. Love, Debbie Debbie Thomas, June 27, 2017 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” – Matthew 5:4 “…my eyes are dim with grief. I call to you, Lord, every day; I spread out my hands to you.” – Psalm 88:9 Mr. Bilse Kenneth and I are deeply sorry for your loss, may God's peace brings you comfort in this time of grief. We love you, Lili Lili and Kenneth Lane, June 27, 2017 Aunt Carole, I don't think I can put into words what an inspiration you were to me and our entire family. You were someone that was kind, loving, and the definition of grace. You always put Uncle Tom in his place and helped us gang up on him when we were younger. I will miss you terribly and our family will never be the same without your kind spirit. I would say that you gained your wings, but we all know that you already had them. Thank you for holding me and wiping my tears when great-grandma died and reminding me that Everytime I take the Host, it wasn't just God's body; it was also great-grandmas. Now we will receive you too. Thank you for reminding me that my faith will get me through anything. Thank you for being an incredible example of God's love. I'll give Uncle Pickle a hug and kiss for you. I'll miss you forever. -Kara Kara Omark-Warner, June 26, 2017 Carole, I absolutely miss you more than I can describe. You're the quintessential definition of patient endurance. You fought valiantly against the challenges of two bouts of cancer dating back to November 2010. In addition to the multiple medical procedures and hospital stays you experienced, you persevered through constant pain and numbness throughout these past seven years, culminating in the past few incredibly difficult months. I hope in some small way I was able to comfort you and tend to your needs. It was an honor to be your care giver. You handled your challenge with faith-filled grace and humility, and you never let your troubles compromise the kindness you've shown to everyone you've interacted with. You inspire me. I so much enjoyed the things we've done and the moments we've shared, including our involvement in various ministries at Holy Cross Church and traveling to numerous destinations (Rome, Jerusalem, Egypt, England). Our 22 years of marriage have been the ultimate gift and blessing for me. In conclusion, may the Lord God kindly and expediently admit you into his loving arms in Heaven. Please save a space for me. I hope to continue to live my life in honor of you and in a way the pleases you. With sincere and unending love and appreciation, Your husband, Tom Tom, June 26, 2017 So sorry for the loss of this sweet lady. Are deeply saddened by the loss and send our love and prayers to the family. Richard and Debbie Hirsch, June 26, 2017 One of my oldest and dearest friends. Being December babies, I will miss getting together to celebrate our birthdays. I have many fond memories of the fun trips we took to Florida, Nevada, the Caymen Islands, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, American Virgin Islands, West Indies, and South America. Then there were the Ranger baseball games, Blackhawk hockey games and country dancing. Later, with the love of your life, Tom, we enjoyed the Frisco Rough Riders. I was envious yet happy that you found your prince, but I got a toad. Carole Ann, I will always treasure our friendship and miss you. Now you can rest in the lap of Christ. PS: tell my folks I said hello. Sandi Worsham, June 25, 2017
