It was a full house at the community hall on Sept. 30, with people coming together to celebrate the life of long-time volunteer and Forest Grove resident, Carol Abrams.
She was remembered by family, friends and community members as a beautiful, fun-loving and very family-orientated woman who always smiled and whose door was open to everyone.
The ceremony concluded with the perfectly fitting song – Somewhere over the Rainbow.
