  1. Another of the "Greatest Generation" has left us. Aunt Carol was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. I will never forget how you always had the time to visit with me, no matter how busy you were. Judy remembers how you were always so welcoming and fun to talk with. We will never forget you.

  2. Dear Nickie and Family – Thank you for sharing the many stories of Nana!  I know how precious she was to you. So sorry for your loss.
