  5. I sold a camper to Don and Carol last year and from the moment I met Carol I knew she was a very special person. She radiated love and happiness from the moment I met her and treated me as though I was a member of her extended family. Words cannot express the sadness I feel for her family with the news of her passing. Please take comfort in knowing that this beautiful woman is now walking with our lord and savior. My thoughts and deepest sympathy go out to Don as well as her whole family. It is truly a sad day when such a kind and loving person is taken from a world when there are so few left.
