  2. To those remembering Carol Stella Philips,
    I am so sorry for your loss. May you focus on the happy memories you had together.
    May you find comfort in knowing that in reality God hates to see you suffer, and he intends to do away with pain, death and suffering very soon.

    Revelations 21:4 Speaks about a time that has yet to happen, this is what God intends to do. As you read that holy verse ask yourself, is it referring to heaven? Has suffering, death or pain ever existed in heaven? No, nor can it, they are angels in spirit form. God is referring to Earth where flesh and blood suffers and experiences death. May you find comfort, hope, and endurance in knowing God has a plan to fulfill his original purpose for all of loyal mankind. (Psalms 37:11). If you unanswered questions please visit with your bible and type in your questions in the search box.

  3. Aunt Carol will be greatly missed. She was such a kind beautiful and soft person. We will remember her always. Her faith and love of God has her flying with the Angels now. Love Elaine and Tony

  7. Carol was so sweet to everyone.
    She had a smile that would light up a room.
    She was always there if I need anything. One time I cut my hand and she took me to the hospital and took care of our son Chris who was a baby at the time.
    Heaven has gotten them a Angel. I know she is watching everyone and smiling with no pain any more. She will always be in our heart and never forgotten. Rest in peace Carol with no more pain and please watch over all of us. We all love you.
    We where so blessed to have you in our life. God blessed you.

  9. Kathy, I am so sorry to hear about your mother! I didn’t even know she was dealing with any health issues. She was a beautiful woman and I know you loved her so very much as well as she loved you. I didn’t know she was only 4 yrs. older than me and that’s too young!! But God has a plan for all of us and you worded it right, She is whole again!!! She always had a smile and kind word! My sympathy.
