    Aunt Carol was the best aunt you could ever hope for. She was a kind,funny, loving soul. She left us with many wonderful memories. She loved children. Loved going on vacation with her to Seattle, Florida and especially camping in the UP. Will miss her dearly but know she is rejoicing in Heaven with her Lord and family. A special thank you to my sister Patty for taking care of her. With her own health issues,she dedicated herself to Aunt Carol. Mom would be proud. Thank you.
