Carol was a wonderful woman..Our friendship was a gift. So many wonderful memories. She loved Tony and ALL the children. Her faith was strong as were all her gifts she gave to her friends and family. I wish I could have given her one more hug, that will have to wait until heaven joins us. Sincerest sympathy to all her family. Love from Terry and Liz McMullin.
