    Carol Jean was part of my life for many years. I cant believe you’re gone. If ever a woman loved a man, it was you!! You loved my Dad with everything you had!! You were a great person and I loved you dearly… im so glad I got to see you the day before you left for Florida. I will cherish the talks we had when you were in Florida, and the many, many memories I have. I will miss you, and your awesome cooking. You may be gone from my sight, but you will forever be in my heart..
