My condolences to your family during this time of grief. Psalms 34:18 (jw.org)

Dee, Houston, TX

My heart is filled with memories and love of Carol and her time here in Indiana. We spent many hours together talking, eating and praying. I miss her today as much as I did the day after she moved back to Texas. Hours on the phone and cards celebrating special occasions were wonderful but not as good as personal contact. Now I can still talk to her at any time and I don't even need the phone. Love to her family and joy with her memories.. Hugs, Micki

Micki and Mike Cesario, Fort Wayne, IN

Carol was such a generous and kind person. She was always there for my Mom at any event she could be. She will be missed by all! I am sorry for your loss, but now she is with Jesus in eternal peace, where I hope we all meet her someday as well! Prayers for your family!

Tisha Keener Jones, Dripping Springs, Tx

Mrs. Martin, the radiant Carol, let me sleep over her house roughly 3 times a week in grade school, go on vacations with her family, and eat too many servings of her unforgettable desserts. I am forever grateful for her love and gentle kind spirit in my life. Her light shines on in our hearts and through her beautiful family. Much love to all who love and miss her.

Melissa Tomjanovich, Los Angeles, CA

I had the honor of making Carol's graduation crown at Duchesne Academy. She was such a wonderful person.

Cindy Bruce, Ottawa, IL

My deepest condolences to the family for the loss of this sweet, kind, caring person. Carol was my aunt, and I wish to share something she did for me that expresses the nature of who she was: We were standing together at her mother's funeral, Janice, all of us in deep mourning. Carol turned to me and said, "You always brought her great joy." I've always remembered that, and how a person at her mother's funeral still found it in her heart to console someone else. To me, that is Aunt Carol. She will be missed.

Dahr Jamail, Port Townsend, WA

We are so sorry for your loss of Carol. She was one of the nicest people I have ever met & just knowing I will never see her again is a tremendous sadness for me. I will always cherish all the good times we all had together. Our thoughts & prayers go out to her family.
