Dear McKinney Family,  
I was so sorry  to her of Carol's  passing. It's  very  difficult  to have  lost a child,  even  in adult age. I have  been  through  it and  I know  how  painful it is. 
She was a very  kind, and  loving  person.  And  such a wonderful  artist.  I appreciated her sharing  some of  her art with me.
My sincere  condolences,  June Herold

I knew my cousin Carol as a positive and very talented person who although had disabilities of her own was always willing to help and very good at taking care of her mother, which was a blessing. She will be missed. So I made this donation in her name to help kids.

She was our neighbor for many years. Remember her sitting outside crafting and painting canvas and wooden eggs. I still have one of her eggs. Thoughts and prayers to Ruth and all the Family.
