    My dear friend Carol ~ You will be so greatly missed. What a tremendous blessing you were to me for so many years and I will forever treasure the friendship that we developed the year you and I worked together in Grade 1 Sunday School at the church. God blessed you with a most incredible musical talent and you shared that talent for so many years bringing honor to Him! I regret that we lost touch over the last year and that I did not know you were in poor health. My heart is sad because you are gone for now, but I rejoice that one day soon, I will see you again "When we all get to Heaven"!!! God's peace to your son and His grace in abundance to all of us who were blessed to have you in our lives all these many years! To God be the Glory for the life of dear precious Carol Haake White Bumgarner!!!

    We are so grateful for the influence Carol so generously shared with our family through her gift of music, her professionalism, and her grace. Her piano lessons were so much more than learning to play music. She instilled the technical side and nourished the expressive foundation. And more importantly, she cultivated the spirtual life of each student. Every piano recital began with a prayer. Hearing Carol play the piano in our church was always a gift and a worshipful experience. Her life counted in ours.

    Carol blessed so many people with her gift of musical expression on the piano. She was a dedicated member of the Lord's mission team in her own church. Her smile as she played and whenever you saw her was refreshing when you were struggling that day. Mom and Dad loved to listen to her play and now they are together again in heaven praising God. John and family, my deepest sympathies to you in your loss.
