  4. So very sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. She was a wonderful, caring neighbor to our family while we lived in St. Marys. We can still hear her friendly “Yoo-hoo!” as she entered our kitchen for a daily visit. We have so many wonderful memories of time spent with Ed, Carol, Eddie & Stevie. I think we even taught Stevie to ride his first bike! May Carol rest in peace. She will forever bring a feeling of warmth and friendship into our hearts.
