    The Bowlin Family will be forever grateful to dear Carol for helping my brother Peter and his wife Lynda navigate Pete's illness. Carol was a caring person, and happened to be a personal friend of Peter and Lynda's. I counted her as a friend and always looked forward to seeing her and Bob. Carol's guidance was more than comforting in this life threatening situation. Carol helped smooth our fears by giving us the latest information on how to cope with intricacies of Pete's illness. We were made aware of any possible gaps in Pete's treatment. There is no way we could ever thank her enough. We were fortunate to be in Carol's sphere, one of the many she helped throughout her life, both personally and professionally. Carol will be dearly missed.

    Ben, it's been a long time since I've seen you, but Susannah told me about your sweet mom. She seems like such a beautiful person inside out (that picture of her is just so stunning), and I have no doubt that you will find ways everyday to remember and honor her and keep her spirit alive. She will always find a way to be with you. With love, Caroline Dennett

    I am deeply saddened by the loss of my friend, Carol. I will cherish many memories I have of spending time with her, especially those of Halloween in her witches hat and costume, smiling and laughing. I am blessed and grateful to have had such a wonderful friend in my life. Mary Ann Johansen

    Ben and family, my heart is broken. I will miss Carol in so many ways, as a mentor, a leader, her humor, her friendship, and so much more. Her light will shine in our hearts forever.
