  1. Thank you everyone for all of the kind thoughts. It means so much to our family that our mother is remembered as the wonderful person we knew her to be. Charles, I’m not sure if you’ll check back but my siblings and I recall helping our mom set up her room at Benjamin Franklin before the start of each school year. She was so proud of her students and their achievements. Her work was important and her students were special to her.

  2. To the family of Carol A. Bamberg, my deepest sympathies. She was a wonderful and beautiful woman. She was my special education teacher at Benjamin Franklin School from 1978-1980. She taught me very well. She will be missed so much because I always admired her. May she Rest In Peace. She will always have a special warming place in my heart.

  3. My deepest sympathy to Carol’s family. She was a joy to be around. She inspired others with her kind and gentle ways. She was always willing to share her knowledge with my granddaughter and I when we would guide with her at the Eghart House. She is a bright shining light who is now glowing in the place we all long for. Well done good and faithful servant. Matthew 25:21

  4. My sincere sympathy to your family. Carol was a lovely person, extremely friendly and kind. Her presence will certainly be missed at the Eghart House. Thoughts and prayers to you at this sad time.

  5. Our deepest sympathy to the family in this sad time. Carol was a wonderful person and friend to the Bostwick family. Sincerely, Elizabeth and Christopher Bostwick, Burlington, WI
