Some of her friends shared memories of her and her friend Harry shared the following ‘She always went in to church early to ‘bully the organist’ she said! But really it was to let me carry her heavy 12 volume Braille hymn book. Once I fell over the kneeler and Carol roared ‘you should have let me guide you in’!’
