    I have just now heard of Carole’s homecoming. I count myself blessed to have known her. She touched many lives, my own included. Her legacy lives on through her family and those whose lives she touched. You are in my prayers.

    To Butch and all the family members of Carole McGrath,
    Glynn and I only found out about Carole’s passing yesterday which was Sunday. I’m so sorry and you could have knocked me over with a feather. Carole was such a young at heart friend and beautiful person. My heart is so heavy for all of you and for the loss that I am feeling as well. I pray God sends comfort to reign down upon us.

    Dear McGrath family
    sorry about the recent loss of your dear loved one Carole. As you reflect on her long precious life and priceless memories that you hold dear to your heart, I hope the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
    Another source of comfort is found in God’s written word the Bible where the Creator of life tells us what the hope future for your dear Carole is to have life again.
    God guarantees that: “”From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them.”-Hosea 13:4
    Please accept my deepest sympathies & a warm invitation for you to find more comfort at jw.org
