i only knew Carol from our once a year arts and faith retreat at Lutheridge (Create in Me) but what a joy and blessing to know her. Such a generous spirit and creative person. I’m so sorry for your loss. We will all miss Carol’s smile and laughter at future gatherings.

I met Carol at the Create in Me retreats at Camp Lutheridge. We had many wonderful conversations together as we worked on various art and craft projects. I will remember her for her sweet and generous spirit. My prayers are with your family as you mourn her loss.

Mrs. Raffensperger, you will always be remembered as my first caregiver in my life. My dad stayed on a ship those first 3+years and my mom was working very hard on her nursing degree/career. You filled a very special role in my family’s life as babysitter and friend to us Hanson’s. Thank you and you will be treasured.

I pray for comfort and peace among your family.
