Pam, I am so sorry to lean of Carol’s passing. I am thinking of your during this hard time and I hope the sweetest memories of your dear one brings comfort to your heart as you move forward without her presence here with you.
Pam, my heart breaks for you during this time of grief. There are no words that bring comfort at a time like this, but just hold onto the years of memories and good times. Love you, and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sending love, light, peace and comfort, my friend.
Carol was a wealth of information about the Revolutionary War and history on this area. She loved Jonesborough and contributed to an architecture survey that led to the formation of a new historic district there.
She will be missed. Condolences top Pam and the rest of the family.
