I met Carol seventeen years ago.
We met at a meeting for
our girls preschool.
Through the years Carol and I
have lunched and brunched.
We have laughed and cried.
We have watched each others kids grow up
and attend different universities.
We have simply lived life.
My life has been blessed and
I am a better person for knowing Carol!
There are tears in my eyes and
an ache in my heart.
Today, I attended my sweet friends funeral.
Carol was such a sweet and gentle friend.
She will be missed deeply.
I will miss her beautiful smile,
her laugh and
her encouraging words.
(and her chocolate chip cookies)

Will you please join me in praying
for Carol's family.

Thank you


"And the peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
will guard you hearts and
your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:7


  1. I am sending up prayers right now. My heart just aches for a family who will miss their momma and for you who will miss your friend~
    Sending you some peace~

  2. My prayers are with you all. What a difficult thing to go through.

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss. Good friends will always be remembered.

  4. I'll be praying. So sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. My heart aches for you and for her family.

  5. Oh Nancy,
    I'm so sorry to hear your news. I ache for you and for Carol's family. I know your days ahead will be very hard and sad and painful and lonely. God is right there with you so allow yourself to go through the hurt and God will bring you through it. What a horrible sad time for you. My prayers are with you and hope you can find some comfort in the scriptures.
