Dear Dan, Sharon and Sabrina, Gary Melissa and family and Beverly's family... Peace be with you as you each grieve in your own way. "Auntie Carol" to us Schmidt "kids" has a very special place in our hearts; our lives were so intertwined and she and Buzz shared so many of life's moments with mom and dad over the decades. They made us all feel special and I am thankful they made the road trip to PA to celebrate my wedding in 1989. I have wedding gift ornaments and Alan's ordination mementos from Carol around our home so she is close in thought. Alan and I were in Michigan this past October and I am so grateful we took a chance on Carol being home - she was, and we had a lovely visit. We didn't get to have lunch with her on what was our last visit so our wish is that she will have her fill of Cracker Barrel in Heaven where her laughter will fill the skies.

Dear Sharon, Gary, Dan, and Families... Your mom was “Auntie Carol” to me, and my very special godmother. She was always there for me at the milestones of my life ... including birthday cards that made me smile and love across the miles. I will always cherish her memory, her hugs, and her wonderful laughter. Love to all of you as you share your memories and find strength and support in being together. Dianne

For Carol‘s family, Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you as we mourn the loss of your mom/grandma/great grandma and my forever friend, Carol. We’ve been friends for a lifetime (I’m three years older than Carol) and Carol was always like a little sister to me. I couldn’t wait until she was old enough to actually play with. We played paper dolls, jump rope paddleball, wrote to the movie stars and learned the words to the songs in the monthly songbooks. What fun we had! We stayed close as time passed and shared more grown-up things; our marriages, families and the loss of our parents. We were godmothers to each other’s first child. How blessed we have been to have all the Hughes/Hansz family in our lives. I won’t be able to just pick up the phone and call but I can still make connections by remembering one of the hundreds of memories we shared. Carol will always be in my heart even though a big part of my heart has gone with her. She is still our angel looking over us. Wishing all of you love and comfort in the days ahead. With love, Joanne
