Krystal, Paul and families I was so sorry to hear about your mom. What a happy person she was! When you two were in elementary school she always stopped by my classroom to chat and say hello. She loved you both dearly. I can see by her video she gave lots of hugs to her grandchildren also. Remember all the wonderful memories you made together. So sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. Carol was always always a wonderful person. I knew her in school in Waterloo, and Dekalb. We were able to reconnect at a reunion and and we shared stories about our lives and families. I loved getting to visit with her.
