    Going to Surfside Beach will never be the same for us. I looked forward to visiting with Carol every summer. She always entertained me with stories, shared her latest health advice, and told us all of the family histories. She was a treasure-trove of information and was always giving us something-cookies, banana bread, a special picture she found, etc. She was so full of life and I often told Joey-when I get older I hope I’m like Carol-still dancing! We will sure miss her. Sending love & prayers for you all.

    I didn’t know Mrs. Kuhn well, having only met her two or three times. However, I have spent many hours in Mr. and Mrs. Kuhn’s basement as a friend playing banjo with their son John. I was always welcome in their home! Knowing John I can say that Mrs. Kuhn – and Mr. Kuhn – were good parents and raised their children well. I am certain too, that Mrs. Kuhn will be greatly missed by all; praying that the Lord Bless Mr. Kuhn, John, his brother and the family through these difficult days.

    I only met Carol a few times myself but she was a true treasure. I know her son, Scott as I am best friends with his wife, Robin. She raised a fine son and from the many stories I have heard, a very avid sports fan as well!! All the kids that Scott grew up with have fine, fine memories. She will be sorely missed by all. I do hope her son got her delicious fried chicken recipe!! Loved that woman’s fried chicken!! Prayers to the entire family.

    I have many fond memories of my Aunt Carol and I know that she will be missed by all. I always loved taking day trips as a kid to Barboursville to visit Uncle Jack and Aunt Carol. Praying for God to give you all strength during this very difficult time. Sending love and prayers.
