The family is appreciative of Christi giving her time and love, to take care of her grandmother in her final moments. Carol lived a long and blessed life surrounded by many friends and family who loved her dearly. Carol loved to dance and go wherever Creole Cookin’ was playing, as she loved the music they played.
