  14. Bonnie Walsh condolence:

    I am so sorry to read that your mom passed away recently. I met Carol in 1969 when Mike and I moved to Brookfield. She was the Welcome Wagon Lady and we became good friends. We were involved in the Brookfield Newcomers Club for several years and she even recruited me to welcome newcomers. I watched the boys grow up over the years. She was “Aunt Carol” to our daughter Michele. We kept in touch for many years until we retired to Florida in 2002. I have so many fond memories of her. She was a wonderful person and friend. I knew so many of you through Carol and I know she will be missed.

  15. Petrina Henry and Family condolence:

    Our prayers are with you at this time of sorrow, how wonderful it will be when the words found in the bible at John 5:28 & 29 are fulfilled “All those in the memorial tomb (Gods memory)will hear Jesus voice and come out” God promises families will be reunited with their loved ones.

Please share your thoughts ...
