  4. This is to offer my sincere condolences to the Galt family upon the passing of Carol. Although we went our separate ways in recent years, I continue to count Darryl and Carol among the best friends Bonnie and I ever had. We enjoyed many years of great times with them, socializing at the Town House Lounge and fun times with the St. Mary’s Central High School Booster Club. I share in the Galt family’s grief upon her passing.

  8. When the heart is empty, filling it with happy memories helps. (Aunt Carol will go for coffee with my mom again.) But I can find comfort in knowing Aunt Carol was a special part of a well-lived life. Time and prayer are the keys to healing sorrow. We offer both to my cousins and uncle. With the deepest sympathy from us at this time of sadness.

  31. Daryl, and family: My sincere condolences to the family. Carol was a dear friend throughout our
    school years. There were hopes and plans to see her in Arizona, which never came about. She always
    shared much about her beloved family in her Christmas letters. She made a difference in many lives due
    to her caring and loving ways. She remains in my nightly prayers.
    Love Carol Anne
