Carole's family....
Will miss seeing Carole and her smile when we go to the to the nursing home
to visit. She enjoyed doing puzzle books and we would talk about that and also the places she worked and what it was like when Bob and Chuck drove school bus routes a few years ago. May she rest in peace.
