I am so sorry about the death of Carol Cox Corum. I have so MANY fond memories from having gone through school with her in Eden. She was one sweet girl and had such a sunny disposition. I pray that God will comfort each member of her family, as only He can do.

Although distance and time constraints have separated us from what I would have liked it to have been-Carol was one of my favorite cousins. She was 10 years older, and remember thinking how beautiful she was! When I took Dad to see her a few years ago, before she went into the nursing home, she hugged us both, and we all talked like the years had never separated us. I know where she is-and she wouldn't come back-but I know the family is hurting, so I ask God to wrap his arms around all of you and comfort you in this time of loss. I wish I could make the service, but cannot leave work tomorrow. Love to you all.

I have known Carol since high school and worked with her years ago as well as knowing her husband Riley. She was such a wonderful, sweet caring person and loved her family so much. My prayers go with her children and family. I loved her like family and know she will be missed by many.
