    My condolences go out to the immediate family of Carol. Carol was a down-to-earth, kind-hearted, loving soul. She always reminded me of my grandma Marie Hankins, or my aunt Judy Giles. She always had a wonderful finesse. Her smile, character, and the way she carried herself. She was always proud of her family, children, grandchildren. Rest in peace, in The Loving Hands of God. Carol Joan Giles

    Carol took care of my mom, Rita Kingery, after the death of my dad. Mom looked forward to her stays and mentioned yesterday when I told her that the two of them loved watching Julia Roberts movies together. She provided her with care and companionship at a time she needed both. Our family is grateful for to your family for your mom.

  16. Cindy Skinner May 25, 2021 at 6:09 pm
