  1. Larry and siblings, Sorry for your loss. I remember Carol… I remember hanging out with Larry at the house and Carol was always so great to me. She “got me” and I felt safe around her. Sounds like she had a nice life. Hope so.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. Growing up in Waubeka we got to know the people who lived in our “community “. Carol’s laugh was contagious. RIP. Deepest sympathy to her family.
