  1. We knew Carole as a friend during her Alzheimer’s Memory Care. She laughed when we played Ballon bounce and loved to dance at the get-togethers. My wife, Betty, also an Alzheimer’s patient, was better for having Carole as a companion and friend for almost three years together. God Bless them together again.

  2. Well Carol Jean would have been at the funeral parlor if I had known earlier. I do miss our days on Arban. We had so much fun.It has not been the same since you and Mac left here.Fly high girl.Love you. Save a place for me.
