Very sorry to hear about Carol's passing. She (and her family) is a good friend to mom and to our family over the years. Many memories of visiting as a child... Carol, her daughter Hazel and family..,. our family, talking laughing... enjoying events throughout the year.... the holidays. Many years ago. Sometimes it is hard to remember specifics so far back. But there is that adage about not what specifically what people do for you, but how they make you feel that lasts. Carol always had a smile. Was always pleasant. She had a demeanor that echoed kindness. THAT I remember as a child. And I can still hear her voice as she and mom chatted. Much love to the Knapp family in this time of sorrow. But also joy in celebrating her life.

Carol was a large part of our family as Ashley and Krista grew. She cared for them in her loving way for many years, and for that we were very grateful. Both Ashley and Krista are married now and Ashley has a daughter (Abigail). We visited Carol at Bethany a couple of years ago and took Abby for Carol to see. So sorry to hear of her passing. May God be with her family in the celebration of her Life. Donna and Charles Collins

Sorry to hear of your mother's passing. We had a good many conversations while she was getting her hair done. Your mom was a very nice person and I enjoyed seeing her on my appointment book. May your memories keep you in your time of sorrow. Joanne campbell Bj,s Hairdesigners
