    I was grief stricken when I heard of Carol’s passing.She truly exemplified the Christian spirit always greeting me with that beautiful smile and caring heart. I have not been in the Lockport area for years now but upon visiting and seeing Carol she always made time to ask about my life.
    An angel was called home and surely has a high place in heaven!
