    I was looking through these obituaries for someone else and came upon Carols. What a sad shock. Sad because there have been so many times I’ve thought to myself I should go visit Laurie and Carol. I lived across the street from them for years and loved their company, humor, and way of looking at life. I’ve missed them and now I’ve missed my chance to see carol again, at least in this life. I’m hoping her husband did not greet her with a mansion full of animals.
    Love to her family, especially Laurie. 💖
