    Dear Lindquist Family~ We were so sorry to hear about the loss of Carol. She touched so many students in the Osceola School District with her gentle hand and warm smile. It was a privilege to work closely with her each day and to get to know not only her strengths as an educator but her personal spirit and great heart. Our thoughts and prayers are with Carol and her family…may the passing of time allow you to heal so that each memory of her brings warmth to your heart and a smile to your face. Our deepest sympathies…
