My thoughts are with my family as they grieve the loss of my Aunt Dee Dee. I hope that warm, happy memories of her and strength will carry you through the difficult times.

My deepest sympathy to all of you. I have known Carol most of my life. Her parents and mine where very good friends. ( I was named after her mom)Carol was a great person and always spoke well of everyone; She had a kind heart. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Words are too shallow to express our sympathy and nothing we could say would be enough. Please know the only thing we can offer is our love to surround you, to keep you warm, and give you comfort and peace. It will be little things that you will remember, the quiet times, most especially the smiles and the laughter. Although you are grieving, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again. Until then let God carry you until you have the strength to stand on your own again. Loving Thoughts to All John & Linda (cousin) Lovasz
