As I grew up, I was able to spend a great deal of time with Carol, and although we didn't always agree, I considered her a second mom. My many memories include late night playing cards when family came into town, and way too early morning garage sales, and most importantly, the great family her and Art raised, with whom my thoughts and prayers are with at this time of loss.
