Condolences may be directed to the family by visiting

Wherever life may take me
Whatever path I choose
I know you walk beside me
In everything I do.
You hold my hand in darkness
When troubles are at their best
You soothe away all the fears
And put my heart to rest.
Not a single day goes by
When I don’t think of you
Your smile, your warmth,
Your love of life,
And all the little things you used to do
However long my life may last
Whatever lands I view
Whatever joy or grief be mine
I will always think of you.
Remembered always.

Carol was a real support as I was going through the last month with my mother who was across the hall at McKinney Place. She would come down to palative care to make sure I was not along and we talked often about the faith my mother and I both had and what was such a help to me. Carol really reached out in my moment of need and I made a point of visiting her weekly since mom passed away. I will miss her. God blessings and comfort to all the family. Betty-Jo Hetherington
