After five years and nine months of fighting ovarian cancer, Carol Garlow was transported from a life of chemo, pain and sickness to eternal life with Jesus. As quickly as we could blink an eye, Carol, was out of her 90 pound, frail body, robed in the pure whiteness of heaven and dancing on streets of gold in the presence of Jesus, friends and family.
