Carol, you were momma to all of us who worked with Bill at Baptist Book Store/LifeWay. It was a privilege to know and love you, as well as, Bill and Kaiser. Our little "family" (y'all, Keith and Merelee) was a special part of my life during those years. I hope you can get together with our sweet Keith and talk over old times!
