My heart and prayers go out to Molly, Dee and Ainslee. I have such fond childhood memories both from Monroe and Camp Waldemar of Carol; she was always so kind to me. A true Southern lady!

Carol was such an elegant lady. She always had a smile for me when we meet. I so enjoyed our time together in Garden Club if America. She will be missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dee, I will always remember the many “visits” I shared with your mother. We exchanged life stories, fond memories and our views about the world. Our visits never seemed long enough. She was such a delight. Her faith and love for her family was always present in our talks. You and your family were truly blessed to have her as long as you did. I know your faith will give you the strength you need at this time. I will miss seeing “Miss Carol” and am so blessed to have known her. She was a treasure! Suzanne Taylor

Molly, Dee and Ainslee. I am so sorry. Your mom and your dad were such an important part of my life. So many, many wonderful memories. If there is room here I must tell this story because it is so Carol. A couple of years ago I was leaving a visitation at Grace Church and about to walk across 4th street to the parking lot. There came Carol dressed to the nines as usual and in her high (and I mean HIGH) heels. about to cross the street. I rushed to her side and she took my arm as I escorted her into the church. To my gentle caution about wearing such high heeled shoes she said, "Craig, I hope I never grow so old that I must wear low heel shoes!" I imagine Jesse and Carol are now arm in arm strolling those golden streets, and her in her high heels. "'Blessed are the dead who from now on die in the Lord.' 'Yes,' says the Spirit, 'they will rest from their labors for their deeds follow them.'" Rev. 14:13 May it be so. Rest in peace, my dear friend. Much love to you all. Craig

Ms. Carol was a true Southern Bell and she lead by example and settled for nothing but the BEST (as she saw it) lol but she was always so nice to our family and truly raised a Blessed family....the world needs more ladies like Ms. Carol, but they are too far and in between...with love and sympathy, Joe Farr and family

Just to let your entire family know how sorry I was to hear of Carol's passing. I remember Carol fondly and every time I would see her she would remind me that my birthday and the day that PaPaw Lindsey died were the same. Thinking of your family during this time. I know she is with Aunt Mignon, Uncle Arthur and of course cousin Jesse D. Love to all the family, Richard K. Albritton

Molly, Dee and Ainslee. I am counting my many, many blessings and am flooded with a lifetime of memories. My heart is overflowing with gratitude. Your mom was so wise from a wealth of experiences and I always valued her wisdom. I will miss your dear mom. Seldom did I see your mom without your dad for indeed "two are better than one." This picture has been on my desk for many years and is indeed a treasure. I love you all like family. All four of our care givers from early life on this very day have no pain and no sorrow as they rest in their eternal home. Thanks Be to God! TREY

Molly, Dee and Ainslee, I am so sorry to hear of Carol's death. She was a beautiful Southern lady - inside and out. May God's grace and Peace help each of you in your grief. I know Mom was glad to see her as she entered Heaven. Linda
Barbara Donovan left a message on May 20, 2020:
I was greeted with great sadness this morning, seeing Miss Carol's lovely picture, then I thought, well, Perhaps God needed a new director of flower arrangements & greenhouses. I could write a book in regard to your parents, your weddings, the Garden club, & there's Errol right up in the big middle of it all. He loved your parents. He learned so much from Miss Carol & Mr. Jesse. If I did not know that they were all together having a good time and enjoying the loving arms of heaven, I would be over wrought. But I know as you you do that we will be with them eventually and they will have lots of stories to tell. Your parents were the epitome of Southern Graces, and they reared you three to be the same. Prayers to all of you, that lovely large family of sweetness. Barbara

So sorry to read about your mama. She was a true Southern Lady. Sending prayers for all of the families.
Nancy Williams left a message on May 19, 2020:
McDonald Girls, I am so sad to hear of the loss of your sweet Mama! I bet she wore those high heels until the very end! She was always so kind to me and could be very funny, also. She went to EVERY funeral, so it is a good move to just have family. Please know that Alan and I will be there in spirit. We are also praying for you and your family. (Also, I didn’t know that she went to Ward Belmont. My mother went their also!)
