I met Carol in Nursing school at University Hospital of the West Indies Kingston Jamaica W.I. in 1981,For the first year of school we were roommates. We formed a bond in those formative years.
Life happens and for years we didn't see each other but when we reconnected it was like old times.
My roommate, you will be missed. Adrian ,be strong. We are praying for you and the family.
I will always remember her smile and how she embraces people.
Sleep on my roommate!! May your soul rest in eternal peace!!
To the family, God is able to see you all through this very difficult time!! Trust God even when you cannot see where he is leading!!
You are all in my prayers 🙏.

To Adrian and the rest of the Lewin family, my deepest sympathy for your loss. In the midst of your pain and sorrow, please be comforted that God always picks the best rose from the garden og life. Carol was a beautiful and precious rose.It is hard to grasp the fact that Carol has left us so soon. Carol was my neighbor in Nursing School. We shared many fond memories over those 3 years that will remain etched in my heart forever. Carol and I spoke about a month ago and we could not wait to meet up, if not for Covid restrictions.
My friend, daughter and batch-mate, I will miss your voice and winning smile. I will miss you, but you will be in my heart forever. Rest well Carol, until we meet again.

Sincere condolences to Adrian and the rest of the family. Carol, along with my dearest Marlene (Shaw), was a sister to me also. I have many fond memories of life with this beautiful and pleasant lady, especially throughout nursing school (I would need a whole book to share). Currently holding back the tears while writing. However, I feel more for Adrian her pride and joy. Be comforted in her memory Adrian.
RIP Dear Friend.

Deepest condolences to the family.
I actually graduated from Nursing School with Carol and we have remained friends through all these years.
Carol was a warm, loving and friendly person. Always giving advice to her younger friends....Shaw and Bonnie.
In nursing school the three of us were like sisters.
She adored Adrian and spoke highly of her Son.
I will truly miss those phone calls. Just talking about those days in Nursing School.
May my dear friend RIP.

You are so unique and beautiful and my every moment will be to celebrate and honor your memory.

My name is Angela, my condolences to the family. I worked with Carol at Hillandale now Emory Hillandale hospital. She was an excellent nurse and a great friend. Carol was so funny she always made me laugh. The last time I spoke with Carol, was a few weeks ago. She called my land line pretending to be a bill collector. We could not stopped laughing, reminiscing on the crazy things we used to do at work to get us through the night and talked about our families. I miss you Carol. You was a dear friend. I’m still in shock.
