    Carol was a very special person I worked with her at Evah’s and some other special ladies . She was always so fun to be with and had a great laugh . She was a great lady and always so nice. Also was a great worker and waitress for Silver State restaurant . Live out of state now but was a pleasure to see her and visit. My sympathy to her family I know she will be missed.
