GUEST BOOK

Mrs. Wigger will always hold a special place in my heart. She will be greatly missed. She liked her things a certain way but she was always so appreciative. My favorite thing to do with Mrs. Wigger was to show her pictures of my little boy she was always so excited when she saw him and told me how beautiful he is. I will miss going through long list of needs. She was very detailed and always knew exactly what she needed. She was a very smart woman. One of my favorite conversations with her was when I was driving down the road and a spider came onto my windshield she told me to turn on my air real cold and that he would forcefully go out of the window to reach warm air and she was right the spider crawled right to the window and went out. She always knew so much about the most random things. I love you Mrs. Wigger rest easy.

Dear Ralph, Karen, Megan, Sophie, and Ryan, I am so sorry to learn of Carol's passing. Carol and I knew each other since we worked together in Washington, DC in the early 1960s. I will always remember Carol as a beautiful "Southern Belle" with long, blonde hair and a peaches and cream complexion. The last time I saw Carol and Ralph, she lived in Maryland and Karen was an infant. She was a dear friend. We kept in touch over the years. Carol preferred to talk on the phone. I preferred to write a letter. Carol spoke so fast on the phone, I didn't always catch what she was saying. I have good memories of Carol and Ralph and D.C. My husband and Ralph share the same birthday. Carol loved her grandchildren and was in "proud grandma bragging mode" when she spoke of them. I will miss you, Carol, and cherish the happy memories I have. You are gone but still with me in my heart. Rita Ricklefs
