So sorry to hear the news. Carol and I go Way back. Of course since we were in the same DVR class of '61. So many memories together and especially her beautiful singing voice and our duets together. Patio parties outside and inside at Christmas with the Scandrols & Flemings and the precious Black Lab. I forget her name. I think Kimberli liked Johnnie Johnson, Chuck Berry's piano player? UCC choir & Class reunion get togethers, leading youth groups to sing folk songs at many venues including hospitals, etc in the '70's. I even sang "Fire" at Don & Carol's wedding up on the hill. and of course who could forget "Puff"for Troy or Trevor, their 'Fave'. Recently I sang on stage with Peter Yarrow the song's 'daddy' in Sellersville. He even signed my guitar. This is not about me but to share precious memories with the family. I will always miss Carol and I send my sincere condolences to her wonderful family. She was such a blessing to me and I will never forget her. A Beautiful Life. Thank you Lord

From: Isabel Blair
Troy, Trevor, Kimberli and Travis I am so sorry for your loss. I moved to Milford at the age of 10 and your mother was the first one to come up to me on the playground my first day at school. We stayed close friends even though I moved away in 1981. When I came up for visits or class reunions, it was she who I was with. We had always had a good time. We went through ups and downs together. Our families were also close. Meloni and Michael also send their condolences. I was sorry that I couldn’t come see her, thanks to this horrible virus. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. You will always be “family” to me. Love you. Isabel (Aunt Izy)
