We all were sorry to hear of Carols passing. We have many fine memories of the Sneegas family dating all the way back to Applewood Ln. We all enjoyed the cards Carol would send us every now and then updating us on your family. She was very proud of all of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

We were neighbors on Canterbury Court in Ashland, Ky.I remember Mrs. Sneegas so vividly in my mind, I remember sometimes just going over and knocking on the sliding glass door off the carport of the house just to visit with her for a while. I can remember countless hours she and my mom (Betty) spent chatting out in the front yard.She seemed to always have time for all the neighborhood kids.That was over 30+ years ago so that gives you an idea of what an impact she had on me.Some people may come in your life for a brief moment but leave footprints on your heart forever. Mom and I send our deepest sympathies, I can only imagine the loss you are feeling, you all are in our thoughts and prayers.
