    Dale and I were saddened to hear of Carol passing. She and Richard had been such good people to know and dependable in helping with everything and anything that needed their help. They also helped with all the projects the church undertook. She will be missed.

    We had a wonderful grandmother,
    One who never really grew old;
    Her smile was made of sunshine,
    And her heart was solid gold;

    Her eyes were as bright as shining stars,
    And in her cheeks fair roses you see.
    We had a wonderful grandmother,
    And that’ s the way it will always be.

    But take heed, because
    She’s still keeping an eye on all of us,
    So let’s make sure
    She will like what she sees.
