Jill, Kit, and Jillian, I am so very sorry for your loss. Carol was always sweet and thoughtful and didn’t seem to mind when the boys broke her window playing baseball. She was a terrific neighbor and all around good soul. Praying for peace and comfort as you mourn her passing. Chris and Patty Riker.
