    Oh, my memories of the wise family go back to the early 70's in Dallas, NC. When Bill Ferguson trusted Carol to be the one that I should call or go too if something went wrong with our daughter, Shawna, I knew then that Carol was a very special person. I know that Bill thought the world of her and her family. She will be missed greatly. I am very sorry for your loss. Pat

    Mom was a wonderful woman who did not deserve the sickness that she faced for the last ten years. She was determined to beat the illnesses and kept up the fight for a long while. She will be missed greatly! I Love You Mom.

    My heart goes out to the whole family. I remember when Carol and I used to get together quite often and play at mama shorty's house. We had so much fun there and of course she played right along with us. She is in a much better place but I know she will be missed. I am glad she is going home to see her mom, dad, my mom and dad, my sister Lori, and all of our other relatives that have passed. What a great reunion that will be. Love you all, Ellen
