She loved Jesus with all her heart. She especially liked to sing, do Bible studies, and help with Church suppers. She enjoyed these so much. I remember going to a supper with her and she was thriving running around and helping. She would admit though, she was not a very good cook.Carol and her husband James spent many great years traveling around Maine with their grandchildren and dog Abby. They took the kids everywhere like the beach, to the ocean, the wire bridge which was one of their favorite spots to go and enjoyed playing cards with family and friends.At the request of the family there will be no formal service.
