I am a former Hallmark employee that worked with Carol at the Liberty Distribution Center. I remember how she was always kind to co-workers and helping out if she could. She listened and shared stories and we would all have a good laugh. She is a precious person that will be missed especially by her family. Heartfelt condolences to you for your loss.
