    I will miss Carole’s Facebook postings. She provided me with a variety of smiles in her choices to share with us. She painted beautifully and her works were peaceful in their presentation. My thoughts and prayers are with you today.

    Carole was warm and friendly and always had a kind word and smile for us. She was a great cook and we loved her desserts. We won one of her paintings at a couples retreat around 1975 and we treasure it to this day. May the God of all comfort bless you Don, Dawn, David and Susan and comfort the loss and pain you are now experiencing. Remember I Thessalonians 4:13 – 18 and be encouraged. Mark & Lindi Johnson
