    We are so sad to hear that Carol passed. She was a wonderful Hockey Grandma that made it to every game, even if the roads were bad. Her love and dedication is what made her shine. She will forever have a place in all of our hearts. Hugs to the Carlson Families!!! Love, The Harstad’s – Brian, Kim, Kellen and Bree
