Bob and family, I am so sad about the passing of Carol. As an old friend of you and Carol, I just want to say “what a great person” and going back to the Hermitage High School days, I remember hope special she was then.
As one of many of your HS friends and teammates, I want to express my appreciation for Carol’s dedicated role in trying to sustain the fond memories we shared with our high school friends.
Carol was special, we all knew it then, and we all know it now. As past Redskin Coach Joe Gibbs would say, “Bob, you out ran your coverage when you married Carol”!!
Again, so sorry and best to your family.
Hi Bob and Family,
Such fond memories of Carol, with you, over our lifetime. Neighbors, Panthers, Reunion teammates – so many of our years together were touched by Carol. Care and support was Carol.
My Carol Jones memories” will always be a source of strength. God bless.
So sorry Uncle Bob, Wendy & Wesley, No words can truly express the sorrow, and attempts to comfort in this hour of such pain and sense of loss. All we can do is to try as humanly possible to offer our Thoughts & prayers. The sting of loss with take time to subside, But the loving memories or Aunt carol, Wife and Mother will never fade. I pray that the Lord will be with you, and help comfort you all through this time of sorrow. May he comfort and bless you all as you move forward. Take comfort in the knowledge that He has called her home and the pain and suffering she must have been experiencing can no longer affect her.

I extend my sympathy to all the family of Carol. May God’s strength and love abide with each of you and give you the comfort
only He can give.
I am Genine Andrews Evans and grew up with her and David. I live in Atlanta so my brother, Courtney, sent me the notice of her passing. Reading the familar names attached to the sympathy notes brings back many memories. I loved Hermitage High like
many. I even was a tutor when it became a Junior high school before moving away.
When we all lived on Swartout Aveue we had a very caring neighbors and her family was one of them. I have been back to
Richmond once since our mother, Martha, past in 2001 and I went to visit my old neighbor. It has really changed and not
like it was when we were kids. Courtney lives in Pamplin, VA and we keep in touch weekly.
May happy memories replace your sadness with passing time and remember she is happy and well now with Christ and you will see
God bless you all.
Sincerely and with prayers,
Genine Andrews Evans
