So many years ago we were Girl Scouts together. She was beautiful then and her beauty lasted throughout her life. Rest in peace, Carol. You will be missed.

So sorry to hear this news. Carol was always a friendly, likeable person delivering our mail and at church. I am sad that our paths never crossed again after we moved away from Indian Springs. Prayers for her family.

I was so very sorry to hear of Carol's passing. She and I were friends and classmates at Gate City High School, we were members of the first Girl Scout Troop in Scott County, cruised Broad Street in Kingsport many times and had multiple sleepovers. Wishing her family comfort and peace to face the days ahead and loving memories to hold in your heart. Carol will be greatly missed by many.
