‪Sending prayers and sincere condolences during this difficult time. I enjoyed our talks on the phone or when I was able to make it back to Michigan and catch up with Carol. She had a big heart and lived her faith so others could see the light of Jesus. I’ll miss her kindness and warmth but know she’s healed and happy at home in the arms of the Father.‬ Love, Dale Henkelman Family

To the family of Carol Wesner,
Several years ago, Carol and I would have lunch together and I remember how she loved to share about her father.
We would have great conversations about him and how she admired all of his gifts and accomplishments.
Carol was a very giving, loving person and one time when my mom was having a garage sale, Carol came over and bought a great amount of items.
When I would visit Carol, i saw many of those items in her garage, and couldn't help but think she bought them,not for her use, but to help my mom. That was the kind of person Carol was. She had a very generous heart and when she was able, she would do anything for anyone.
I'm ashamed to say we lost contact with each other and I regret that very much. I do hope she knew how much I enjoyed our times together.
We will miss her, but know that she is now with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and is at peace.

My beautiful mom, the most kind and gentle woman who loved so many, and always put the needs of others before herself. I thank God for her life, and grateful for her faith in Christ that helped lead me to Him so many years ago. I know she's in a place of unspeakable Glory! I love you and will miss you so much! Kath
