    So sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.

  3. Carrol was a good friend and really nice person. She lived just a couple blocks from us in Morris, MN. We got pixie haircuts together (she looked great in hers!) And hung out together until they moved to Cyrus. I still think often of her. May God ease the aching of this loss and fill your minds with all the good memories. I think she would want you to smile on every remembrance of her.

    Carrol is my favorite cousin and the sweetest person I have ever met. Growing up together we had lots of great memories. Loved her a lot.

  5. I’m so sorry for your loss. I’d like to share some real hope with you. In Psalms 146:4 tells the condition of the dead. “His breath goeth forth, he returneth to the earth and that very day his thoughts perish.” In John 6:40+44 and Acts 24:15 the bible promises a resurrection of our loved ones back to earth. God’s original purpose was for man to live forever in the garden of eden. God’s purpose hasn’t changed. In Revelation 21:4 says there’ll be no more pain or death. Since there’s no pain or death in heaven, those are future conditions here on earth as God had intended.

    Carrol is an extra special cousin. I will remember her with much love. I’m so thankful God gifted me with the week I had with her last September. God bless you all with comfort and peace.
