Paul, Trisha, Renee, Rod & Matt,
Our sincere sympathy on the passing of Carol Jean. We were so saddened to hear of her passing. Carol Jean was such a special person. Never turned down an opportunity to “help” and even with her limited mobility, she never stopped. She will be missed by so many, I’m sure especially by her grandchildren – whom she treasured. She did so many volunteer “missions” from her home. She volunteered for the “Giving Tree'” in ways people never realized, and for Queen of the World Church. God Bless you Carol Jean, I’m sure you and Cookie are ready with your special “scissors” to complete many projects in heaven. May you rest in peace.
You will be sadly missed!
Our Condolences and Love to the Family, Mary Ann & Donald
