    Remember it is the “dash” between the two dates that represents the woman she was and the memories we all shared with her. My thoughts, prayers, and love are with all of you during this difficult time.

    To Aunt Carol — thanks for all the memories and laughs over the years. You were always great at packing a lot into a small space, and you packed a lot of living, love, and laughter into that dash between the dates.

  11. Wes and Lizane :

    As I said in the first message I would add a story that we still talk about. Kyle was 3 at the time, he had a bandage on his arm that weekend and refused to take it off. It was kinda just hanging and he refused to have me pull it off. Carol called Kyle over, and she just pulled it off. It was still stuck to his scab, so of course it started to bleed. Kyle started to cry and Carol ran into your RV and got Kyle a Freezie. That made everything ALL BETTER. Kyle still remembers Carol from that weekend. She will be missed, but never forgotten. Our love goes out to you all. Wes, Lizane and the boys.

  12. Wes and Lizane (The Campimg Club North Bay) :

    Dear Gerry, Chad and Christa, we want to offer you our deepest condolence on the loss of your wife and mother. Carol was always smiling and happy. We were so shocked to read that she had passed. Wes and I wanted to share a very funny story that always makes us laugh. It was in the first posting, Sorry again for your loss. From fellow campers Wes, Lizane, Keith and Kyle White of North Bay
