My Mom, Carolyn Pape sends her sympathy to Carl and her family. They were good friends playing cards in New Bremen . Mom had to go to Otterbein after falling and breaking her elbow in August.
She will miss talking to her. Our thought and prayers.

Carol was a wonderful and giving lady. I was blessed to get to know her while she took unselfishly and loving care of her own mother. I was the nursing aide that helped her with her mother until her passing. I used to tell her "your crown will be filled with many jewels when you get to Heaven for the love you showed your mother"! Tana, Velina, Valerie, Dale, and families, You can be sure she is wearing that crown! She will be missed and all of you are in my prayers. Love and sympathy, Tammy

Adam, Tana, Velina, Valerie, Dale and families. I'm sending you a big hug right now! Carol has moved to heaven and many old friends and family are there waiting for her to join the party and I am not sure heaven is ready for that!! Can you imagine? Chair guitars, volleyball nets, fresh lima beans and song sheets just to name a few. I will never forget all the good times we shared. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sending my love, Terri.

Please accept our deepest sympathy and prayers. Carol became a great part of our family through Carl. We had many laughs and fun times at our monthly cousins' get togethers. We will miss her a lot--her jokes and stories always kept us laughing. What a great person--we are so glad she became part of our lives.
