Our deepest heartfelt condolences on this monumental loss. Carol always made us feel welcome and loved. We will miss her greatly!
Over the years I loved hearing stories from my parents Jim & Betty Ruppel, about their times with Don & Carol and have been fortunate to make my own memories with their children. So grateful that my mom & dad taught me the value of a good friendship. May your hearts overflow with love for each other as you journey into this next phase of life. Blessings and love to all.

Don, I am so sorry to read about Carol's passing. I know how you are feeling right now as my husband Duane passed away the day before Carol. The thought of never hearing their voice or holding their hand or kissing their cheek or sleeping beside them breaks my heart. Prayers and understanding go to you and your family. Cheryl

I did not know Carol personally but feel like I do through her son Kevin. Its been a privilege knowing him and his family over the past year and getting to know Carol through him. He would always talk about his mom and tell stories of them growing up how wonderful on a lady she was. May God be with the family through this tough time and give them piece at knowing Carol is in such a better place with no more pain or sickness.
