Ellen, Paula, Paul And Fred, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom and sister. She and Fred were the first to make me feel welcome when I first bought Clyde's farm. We had no utilities that first night and Carol brought a shepherds pie over that was piping hot and delicious. She was a true friend to us. I missed her so much when she sold the house and moved to Port Crane, but I will never forget the many kindnesses she showed me over the years. Now she's in heaven watching over all of us and is together with Fred again. All who knew her were blessed by her presence. RIP, Carol.
