    Bledsoe Family - Carol was the receptionist at my Tuesday night Weight Watchers meeting. She always had a smile to share and was so understanding to those still struggling with their weight loss. She was a wonderful person and will truly be missed! Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    Carol was funny and full of positive energy. She was our receptionist at my Weight Watcher's meeting and she would always listen to my ups and my downs. She understood and empathized with me and always found a way to make me feel better no matter how bad it was. I did not know her outside of the meeting setting, but those of you who did, well you were truly blessed. It is hard now, it will be hard later, but just know that she was a good person and good people go to the Lord. That should help, just knowing and believing that. Believing is the what is important. Bless you all.

    Janet C.

    You will be missed.
