  7. I worked with Carol for many years at DHHS. She had a challenging job and she was the backbone of the agency. Never a harsh word from Carol, no matter the situation. What a wonderful person. I am proud to know her.

  8. Lori and David,
    I’m so sorry to hear about Carol. She was such a sweet person. She was kind to everyone. I remember her driving a carload of kids around to go skating, swimming, shopping, to movies…she drove us everywhere! May all your wonderful memories of her help you in this sad time. Love, Beth Edwards
