    Dear Rich and family,
    I am saddened to hear of Carole’s passing and so sorry for your loss. Carole was a sweet person and always very kind to me; even after my Epic paint spill at her(your) house all those years ago. It is a terrible club to be in, when you lose your mother. My condolences to you, your family, and your brother and sister. I know she will be missed.
    As they say, “May the dirt lie lightly on her”. With love, Tom Burless & family, Abilene TX

    Thanks for being be the best Nana to us grandkids and raising the most amazing kids.
    I am so thankful that God choice you to be my Nana. I will forever be grateful for every second I was able to spend with you. Thanks for always being that person I could talk to about anything and always giving me the best advice. Thanks for all our lazy days and coffee dates, all the belly laughs and always causing trouble.
    My heart is heavy and I miss you so much but I hope you’re up there out of pain having a smoke with Papa Dick.
    Keep looking down on our crazy family.
    I hope I keep making you proud.
    Love you my Nana.
