Carol was such a warm, kind and loving person - she always had a hug for us - and she was an important part of the "Young Clan," which she married into. This photo is one of my favorites, taken at our June 2018 Young Family Reunion. Carol always enjoyed her family and extended family, and she always made us feel welcome and loved. This very special lady will be missed by so many.
