    Many wonderful memories of Carol Ann during my growing up years. I always loved her giggle and I loved the way she said “Aunt Lala” to my mom. I loved how she referred to Uncle Floyd always as Daddy. She was so family oriented. I know Alex, Uncle Floyd, Aunt Viola, Aunt Harriet, Uncle Bud and Grandma and Grandpa are happy to receive her in heaven. You are in my thoughts.
    With love, your cousin, Susie
