Carol you were such a wonderful woman. You were the closest to a mom figure I ever had. I used to love getting my hair done and we would have Brendan in his walker and he would be rolling around the shop. Brendan has become such a great man because you were a part of it. You even welcomed Robert and Kristina and they always had a great time. Your laugh,smile and positive ways made me see life as a mom so much better. I hope I’m half the mom you were. You will always carry a special place in our hearts We love you. You will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace
