Carol was like a second mom to me and Alice. She will forever live in my memory and I love telling my kids about Carol. She took care of us, we played countless games, went to the library literally hundreds of time, and so much more. I love you Carol.

Carol was a classmate of mine and though I have not seen her since 1976 at our graduation I am sure she will be missed by many. Carol was very quiet & shy and never had anything bad to say about anyone. Carol, I hope your at peace with the rest of the angels up there.

Carol will always hold a special place in my heart. Her smile always made me smile. Always had a kind word to say to me if I was feeling down. I can not say enough about how wonderful of a person she was. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
