Our prayers are with you in the loss of your mother. She was a good friend and a hard fellow worker at the Ambulance Association. My family will be out of state on vacation next week and will not be able to attend her service. Assure all that our prayers will be with you.

Rev Paul L. Herring
My condolences to the family, Carol was a friend and an employee that helped Metro Med out on standbys and I had the priviledge of being there and talking to her, she was also a true helper as a Volunteer whether it was on the Ambulance as an EMT or whether she was helping with the QA's of the triosheet. She will be sadly missed by me and by others. Carol, you are free now.

With deepest sympathy  to your family, at this time of sorrow. Mike if you remember me I'm Todd Newhouse from the old days and my mother is Leona. Todd 
Carol was a good friend and a long time colleague EMT at Silver Spring Ambulance. Her care for other people showed in her work for the Dept. of Health and her volunteer work with Company 72. She may have been short in stature, but had a great big smile. She will be missed.

Tom Whitfield, EMT-B  (72-15D)
Angie, I am so sorry for the loss of your mother in law.  I lost my father in law in October of last year and it was heart wrenching.  It was as bad as losing my own father will be.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and Donnie at this time.  God bless you and be with you during this time.

Angie Kitting Keefer
We met your mother through Silver Spring Ambulance Association. Have known her for many years.  She was always on the go, ready to help where and when she was needed.
Hold on to the precious gift of memories she gave you, for each one is a treasure. She is missed.

...I worked indirectly with your Mother for years...found her to be a no-nonsense practical person who did her job well with a minimum of fuss...has been sorely missed since her retirement...God Bless and take care of all of you...I know your Mother is looking out for you from Heaven

 So sad to hear of her passing. I worked with her for the Health Dept. when she was in Harrisburg District Office and spoke with her much when she went to Perry Co. SHC.  Had dinner with her and some other retired gals time to time.  Didn't know she was even ill, and just today (June 23rd) heard of her death. Carol and I emailed, and she told me of her Alaska trip, and she told me I should go there too sometime.  She saved and saved for that trip.  I am so glad she got to go.  I just can't believe the news.  God must have had better plans for her.

Sharon Maines (Hunt. Co. SHC
