    To the entire Meyer family,

    My deepest sympathy is with all of you at this very difficult time. I was truly blessed to have “Dr. Carol” as my peds doctor. As a child who required frequent injections, the MD office probably was my least favorite place to go, but Dr.Carol was always there with a huge smile, her warm heart and comforting touch to help ease my anxiety. It was so heartfelt that when I “aged” out of her care, I actually had a tremendous sadness overcome me. She was a wonderful MD, and a lovely, sweet and gentle lady who was loved by all. She was an inspiration that I hope has and will continue on in my own caring of pts.as a nurse. She will be grately missed, but her memories will last forever. Many blessings to all of you.

  2. My sincerest sympathies to the Meyer
    families. I worked (short time) in the M,M&A office there on Main Street in the 1970’s. Dr.Carol was always most gracious to me which in turn made my brief stay so very worth while. We would share our thoughts briefly before or after church. God rest her dear soul!

    So many wonderful memories of Mrs. Meyer. A calming presence was what she brought to every situation, and that wasn’t easy with four high energy boys and all their friends bouncing around her house. The Meyer’s house was always the place to be for all the kids in the neighborhood; there was always a game of softball or football or basketball in their big yard or a card gave of hearts inside. Over many years I never experienced Mrs. Meyer losing her temper or control. When she was present she always made you feel every challenge could be met and obstacle overcome…everything would be fine. When she drove by in her car you’d always know she’d give you the signature wave by gently exercising her ring and middle fingers. She will be dearly missed with many, many fond memories.
    Bless you Mrs. Meyer.
