There are no words to express the feeling of loosing someone that's dear to your heart. I know that you will be missed by many including myself. I always made an effort to come see you at your sons house(Jeffrey DeHart)when you were in town. I will never forget your great smile and our great conversations and I wanted to thank you for your service in the United States Navy. Rest in peace sir and Godspeed.

I cannot tell you how much Carol and all of you mean to me, you have been a part of my life since I was little. Carol took me on my first Bow hunt for deer, I will never forget the memories I have with the Deharts and I love you all very much. RIP Carol, I am sure you and Jerry are up there smiling about how good the happy hunting grounds are.
