Raymond, My God be with you at this time of sorrow. God looked around his garden, and found an empty place, He then looked down upon this earth, and saw a tired face. He put his arms around her, and lifted her to rest.God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best.He knew that she was suffering, He knew she was in pain.He knew that she would never, get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb. So He closed her weary eyelids, and wispered,"Peace be Thine" It broke your heart to lose her, but she didn't go alone.For part of us went with her, the day God called her home. And though we cannot see her, she is always by our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing is the same. But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. Peggy (Carithers)Wilburn

I regret that I did not know Carole, but 'feel like I did. She was a dear and beloved friend of my sister Linda Carroll Hammock. I grieve with her and with you over Carole's passing. Carole will undoubtedly live on through the lives of those she loved and who loved her.

I was fortunate to meet Carole will visiting my dear friend Linda Hammock. I was thrilled to get to meet her, since I heard so much about her. The three of us had a weekend of laughter. Carole will be missed by those she touched.
