Carole Jane Cochran McNeese
She went home to be with the Lord yesterday morning. Carole was a very special lady. There is so much that I could say about her. Carole has been fighting MS for a very long time. She has 3 grown children and a husband that loves her very much. Carole has been in a nursing home for several years so she could get the care that she needed. She got to the point where she could not talk and all she could do was move just one hand. But with that one hand, Carole could say so much more than anyone I know. When I went to visit and would talk to her, she would raise her hand and praise the Lord. When I first started visiting Carole a few years ago, I thought that I might help her to feel better. But after my first visit, I found out that I did not help her as much as she helped me. Through everything she went through, she always praised the Lord. Carole was raised in a Christian home and was blessed with a Godly husband. If you mentioned her husbands name, her eyes would light up. She loved him so. If I have ever saw true love, they had it. He stood by her all the way. What an example both Carole and her husband are to me. When we went to the funeral home tonight, her husband told me that he was so proud of her and her life. He knows where Carole is. She is 6 years younger than me, yet she taught me so much about life. When I think of her, I think of that verse in the Bible that says:
II Timothy 4:7
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith......
To me, that says it all. I am proud to call Carole my cousin. Please keep her husband and children, her mom & dad, brothers & sisters in your prayers.
