Condolences to the family. I was so shocked to hear this. I pray for God's grace and peace to be with you all. Jeanie to me was a close friend and cousin growing up in Raleigh. I know Bob because he was a friend of my cousin, Ronald Cantrell. I have met you kids only one time when you all came to Raleigh Days with your mother. Darlene Goodson Gunning and I were planning to come and see her this Spring. We waited to long and I regret that. I have many fond memories of your wife/mother. I'm so sad for your loss and everyone that knew her. Love and prayers to all of you. Connie Bishop Tuttle I will never forget one of the last words she send me was " I love u cuz." The feeling is mutual.

Carole was a one of a kind person. I enjoyed our conversations immensely and she made me laugh. She was smart, funny, kind and giving. If she liked you, you were lucky to be her friend. If she didn’t , tough, no sweat off her back. I was one of lucky ones. She let me pick her peaches. She will be missed! Fondly, Pam
