Bowling and making toy chests and Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls for the grandkids were great memories she did with Richard.

Carole’s kids will forever remember being called to the house by the. “Cowbell” and swimming parties, outdoor cookouts, and very large Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings.

The “kids” want to thank Mom and Dad for all the love and memories. Mom spent the last couple years in Florida where she enjoyed the weather, the beach and made a trip to The Keys. Till the end, Mom was a motivator. Thanks for all you did and all you sacrificed, Mom. Love you, always!
