My Aunt Carol. You will be greatly missed, You have a very special place in my heart. Although I moved away six years ago you were always on my mind. Whether it was just a phone call or when I came back to New Jersey to visit you and uncle Ray. It was always very special living next-door to you growing up in Bricktown. All of our Christmas Eve dinners with all of our families. Special times with me and you were taking art classes together for painting. You will always be in our hearts and greatly missed. May God watch over you and you rest in peace . I will always love you and never forget you .

Carole or Mima as she was lovingly called by her dear family, was part of our Friday night landscape at Eagle Ridge. She was witty and loved to be part of our group’s loving exchanges. She made the corkscrew game look easy with her one and done. We’ll surely miss you, Carole. Thank you for welcoming us into your family.

When I was 5 years old, I was the flower girl at Aunt Carole and Uncle Ray's wedding. I remember thinking she was the most beautiful bride I had ever seen. She was beautiful inside and out and will be greatly missed by all the family.

Mima, my earliest memory was running around your ceramics studio as a kid. I always thought it was the coolest place.
I also want to thank you for always being my victim on my experimental dinners every Monday night & And also for teaching me how to shamelessly cheat at Rummy 500. We have always had a lot of fun together. I will miss you and our dinners. Hope you are enjoying all the dirty martinis in heaven.
