Dear Coach & Family,
I was so sorry to hear about Carol's passing. She was an amazing lady, always full of life and laughter. I don't thinki I will ever forget her cheering in the stands during basketball games. That is stuck in my memories almost as much as Coach yelling at us from the sidelines. LOL
My thoughts are with your family during this difficult time, but I know that she is still cheering for everyone from a glorious place.
