BELOW: Carol's husband gave up on life and apparently committed suicide after the zombie apocalypse began:
Carol: Sophia's father was the breadwinner. I sold some Tupperware out of catalogues from time to time but it was really just to friends and neighbors. I wouldn't have considered it a job. My husband was a car salesman. They used to say he could talk anyone into anything... He talked me into marrying him... Talked me into staying with him after... ... He watched his parents die right after everything started to happen. He couldn't deal with it... He just sort of gave up on life... He... y'know. After he was... gone Sophia and I came here to stay with my sister... We figured it'd be worth the drive to stay with someone we know...
