    To Norm, Kelly, Laurie, David and the rest of their families,
    I am so sorry for your loss.
    Carol and Norm welcomned me in their family with open arms and the warmest hearts when I stayed with them for a whole year as an exchange student in 1988-89. They treated me as their own daughter and made me feel at home even though I was far away from my Swedish family. Carol came to my wedding in Stockholm 2004 and she, Kelly and Laurie celebrated our special day with us and were our most honored guests. I will also keep our last meeting in my heart, when we got together in Adams in the summer of 2019. It was wonderful to meet up again after so many years apart. I will remember Carol as the warmest, most loving and positive person. Her love to Norm and her family was so strong and so true. I will miss Carol tremendously and my heart aches for you Norm and for your family.
