Linda (Simmons) Berglund says
When I think of Carol it is always with a smile. And is always seems to be a Bob & Carol. Or Carol & Bob. They are good friends of my mom and dad, Lois and Thom Simmons. When my dad died a few years ago Carol and Bob were right there and helped my mom. Carol was a FB friend and I loved seeing her reply with a smile and an answer. Carol loved her family and friends. I will miss not seeing that I have made her smile, but know that she is. It is just up in Heaven. I love you Bob! Love, Linda (Simmons) Berglund
