I would like to share a story of Carol‘s kindness.
In 2008 my husband and I and our two children, aged 10 and 11, bicycled across America. In Spencerport I started having a flareup of multiple sclerosis and was having trouble bicycling. Carol saw us in town on a cold rainy afternoon. She told her husband, “If those people bicycle past our cabin, I’m going to invite them in.”
As we went past their place a couple of hours later, she did indeed call us in out of the rain. She welcomed us and fed us. But she did so much more.
She invited our kids to play with her grandchildren, while Charlie and his dog Toebe drove my husband and me two hours to the hospital. He waited four hours and bought us snacks while I was sitting in the emergency department. Then he drove us back to their home.
Meanwhile Carol had fed the children dinner, gotten them into bed, and was waiting up with a warm meal when we got home in the middle of the night.
To us, Carol was nothing short of an angel in human form. We will always, always remember her comforting kindness and generosity to us as strangers. Our heart goes out to her family, especially her sweet husband, whom we understand is known locally as “Saint Charlie“ for his own generous nature.

So very sorry to learn of Carol's passing. My prayers and hugs to Charlie and to both of their families. I didn't know her well, but know how much happiness she brought to Charlie. You are all in my thoughts.

We lost an amazing woman. She will be dearly missed but we will always have our memories of so many family fun-filled winter weekends snowmobiling together. Nothing can take those days away from us. I know she is in heaven with our Lord and I know she was greeted by so many loved ones.
Rest in peace Carol, no more bad days. We love you, Dick, Peg, Shelley, Mike and family
