The Lord has called a wonderful woman home and she has answered.
Please rejoice in knowing that she is not suffering anymore.
 I worked with Caryl in BCPO. She was a wonderful person.
 May God comfort you in your time of sorrow.

The Lord has called on a wonderful person and she answered to her call. I worked with Caryl in BCPO and it was good to work with and to have known Caryl. She would always give words of encourgagement. Caryl is now at rest with no more pain now that she is with the Lord.
 My prayers are with all of her family during this time of loss.

Dear Ron,
I was so surprised to see Caryl's obituary in the paper. I had not idea that she had cancer.  I guess that was why we hadn't seen you at the Apple Harvest in a few years--we all remember you two were in the group that was in the festival from the beginning I believe. Like my children your children were in your booth lots of time also.
I send my thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Loosing Caryl must have been so difficult. I can understand some what you are feeling since I lost Charles also, but mine was
instantly where as you fought with her in her fight to over come cancer.
It has taken me a long time to get over Charles' death and I still think of him often each day so don't think that it is easy to accept their absence. I'm sure she is in a beautiful part of heaven because she made her place on earth beautiful for her family and friends.  Her handcrafts were lovely and are special treasures now to all those who have them.
My prayers and thoughts will be with all of your family.
