    Buddy, I just learned of Mary Carol’s passing. I am so sorry. You told me a few years ago she was having health problems. I pray her passing was gentle and is now in the loving arms of God, never to hurt again.

    Mary Carol was always a gentle soul and caring person. High School days might have been chaotic, but I remember she had a sense of calm about her which we all appreciated.
    My condolences to her family.

    I knew Carol from high school and she was the sweetest girl in our class. If I remember correctly she lived next door to her cousin Sherry and the 3 of us were together a great deal of time. I am saddened to learn of her death and will pray for the family that she is leaving behind.

    I send my prayers and sincere condolences to the Greig family for the loss of Mary Carol. I will miss my sweet friend of over 40 years. She was always a warm, sweet and humorous lady despite all her problems. We can take comfort in the knowledge that she is free of pain and suffering, and resting in the arms of her Savior.
