We never meet Carol but knowing how nice Caitlyn & Lynn are she must have been a very special person. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

In the short time I cared for your mom, I could tell right away that she was quite a character. Her big smile lite up the room. She shared her love for her family and was so very proud.
May she rest in peace.
