Carol was such a kind person and good friend to my Mum when she moved to Brewer. She was a blessing in our family's time of change. Her story sounds like she has been a kind and loving person her whole life. I always enjoyed visiting with her. Condolences to the family.

Carol's soul was so sweet. She was patient, kind, and forgiving. She put others first moment to moment. She is no longer there to great me in the mornings, and I am saddened by the void that is left.
I miss you, Carol. May your soul be content and at peace.
To her family, I am so sorry for your loss.

I loved this woman from day 1. She and I had some kind of special bond. Since her passing, almost on a nightly basis I have dreamt of her coming to my bed side asking if I'm ready for her as she did every morning when she was with us. My deepest condolences to her family who I also became close with. May God rest her beautiful soul.
