A friend heard that Cindy was looking for some ladies to help out as needed at the funeral home. Carol applied not having any experience working in a funeral home and found out she really liked it. Carol’s love for others, recognizing the need for people to know they are respected, cared for, and important gives her the tools to do exactly what she is “called to do”. Carol enjoys baking cookies and having beverages on hand while working visitations, as hospitality is one of her gifts.
