We recently lost Carol, mother and wife, with 2 high school sons and a husband at home, on March 1, 2018 due to a an acute illness.  
Carol had spent many years with chronic migranes and there where many medical bills that had accumalted and she was unable to contribute to their income. Carol had aquired medical bills recently in the last year to another illness. 
Carol passing has left a void in her family and also without a mom to plan his spring graduation from highschool. Due to Carol's prior illness history they were unable to aquire life insurance and therefore leaving substancial final expenses.
Carol was able to assist with some expenses in her caring for olderly persons in her community and that income will be missed. 
Carol's passion in her life was to care for others. Not only her children, but to offer a place of respite and love for an untold number of children in her life. 
Until her end, Carol was more focused on others than herself. Making certain that those she was leaving behind would be cared for and comforted. Carol never met a stranger. She could meet someone one time and have a love and compassion for that person that would impact them for a life time. At the time of her passing, countless people gave accounts to her family about her charity and kindness that bring even the hardest of hearts to their knees. She was certainly an angel among us.
Any donation given in Carol's memory will be considered a blessing and will be used to cover her final expenses and continue her charity and good works.
