I will always remember Carol's beautiful laughter at our big DeVries family gatherings. She just lit the place up with her true happiness.

I'm sure all the DeVrieses are having a wonderful reunion with her in heaven. Peace and comfort to those missing her here.

My heart goes out to all of you. I have known Carol since I was 17 years old. When she would come in Springrove Variety(formerly Suburban 5&10) she would always search me out to give me a hug and see how things were going. She will be greatly missed by all of us at the store and countless others. God Bless.

To Alan and family, I had the privilege of hiring Carol to work with me at Grand Valley Int. Medicine years ago before she even had thoughts of becoming Wyomings Mayor. She was a wonderful person--always wanting to please and help in any way she could. She talked of her family all the time---through good and bad she always looked to God for his guidance. Alan you were the love of her life - I know how much you will miss her companionship. It was difficult for me to write this as I know it means she is really gone---but I know she is in heaven with our Lord and will be organizing things up there and taking care of anyone who asks. She will surely be missed.

I had the honor of being Carol's niece, she was a big part of my daily life. As I try to wrap my heart and head around a world where Aunt Carol is not it in, I will cherish the memories. Prayers to all of us who loved her.
