Carol was such a beautiful and sweet lady. I worked with her at JCPenney. Both Carol and Otis knew my parents and attended functions at the American Legion with them. My sincere sympathy to the entire family.

My heartfelt sympathy and prayers to the family, Deuteronomy 32:7 tells us to remember the days of old special moments spent together, valuable lessons given or comforting words shared together can be a source of comfort to the family during such a tremendous loss to the family.
