Carol, Larry, and my deceased husband, Bob, spent many happy hours together serving the Lord at Forest Avenue plus just visiting in the Rio Grande Valley years ago.  Carol was such a caring person and was willing to be used by the Lord. She is now in her eternal home and and is worshiping the Lord that she served here on earth.  My prayers and love to the family for one lady that I was proud to call my friend.                                    - Bobby Jean Fleming
