To the Family of Carol,
My deepest sympathy to you all. I was also in the Fremont Ross graduating class of 1966, and remember Carol. Hold on tightly to each other during this time, and pull strength from one another. Share positive memories of Carol. Our loved ones who go “home” before us will forever live in our hearts. My encouragement at the passing of family members has always been 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. That beautiful promise from our Lord gives me comfort, encouragement, and hope during the dark times when I miss my loved ones so much. Embrace that promise as you look forward to being reunited one day. God’s blessings and comfort on you all.
My heart goes out to your family at this difficult time.
As you being one of John’s students in the 70’s, and even with You working beside me in mid 70’s…I can not believe that Your sister Carol (and my classmate) were sisters. I had no idea. I was very saddened to read of her passing. Sending our love and condolences to You and family.
With Our Sincerest Sympathy,
John & Cindy Rizzardi
