    HER JOURNEY’S JUST BEGUN
    Don’t think of her as gone away-
    her journey’s just begun,
    life holds so many facets-
    this earth is only one….
    Just think of her as resting
    from the sorrows and the tears
    in a place of warmth and comfort
    where there are no days and years.
    Think how she must be wishing
    that we could know today
    how nothing but our sadness
    can really pass away.
    And think of her as living
    in the hearts of those she touched
    for nothing loved is ever lost-
    and she was loved so much

    IN LOVING MEMORY

  10. I dont know any af you, but I just wanted to offer my condolences to the family and friends of Carol.

    Was sad to receive the news. I met her when I was transferred to Fairness (Collections) here at the CRA. She was my mentor, for 2 yrs, and trained me in a new job. She was very helpfull. She was also a kind lady and best of all we had lots of FUN.

    Thats the way she liked it and thats the way I will remember her.

    Take Care Ray
