I am so sorry about Carol I was in shock when I heard the news she was such a good person I have only known her for four years through the Mill but in those four years I knew what kind of person she was she was kind hearted she never treated you like you were a bother to her she listened even if it was a half hour of her time away from her job she was there for anyone who went in her office I am going to miss her so much I had just talked to her on Thursday to hand in an envelope and it turned into a conversation. My Prayers go to you and your Family and Monty.

My deepest sympathies for the loved ones of Carol for their loss. It has been many years since I last saw her, but I remember her as a good, gentle soul and so dear to all that were blessed to have her in their lives.

To all of Carol's family: I am struck and deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Carol. I was away during everything and just missed her services. I am the youngest of 4 siblings (Jeff, Sue, Scott), the only one in the area. I have told them of the tragic news. We are first cousins with Carol - the children of Bruce Keeney (Carol's mother Joyce's brother).

I know I speak for all of us when I say that Carol and her siblings were especially close to us out of the whole Keeney clan. Carol was often at family reunions over the years. My older siblings were especially close in age and have fond recollections.

Though I did not know Carol extremely well I was always impressed with her kindness. As many have expressed, she seemed always engaged and listening to what you had to say and was always with a smile.

My family expresses their deepest sympathy to Carol's family at this very difficult time. You can be comforted by remembering Carol's smile and the impact she made on other's lives.

Chris, Tricia, Maria, and Joseph Keeney
