It's been so tough to even put words together to convey how much you meant to me in this life. We knew from the beginning that we were soul sisters. I valued your wisdom.. I loved hearing all of your amazing stories... and celebrated your zest for life and travel. You were my mentor and my best friend. My heart is broken to know that you are no longer here in the physical, but I know that you will always be with me in spirit. I'm truly grateful for everything you've brought to my life. Memories that I will have forever and will be able to share with Viviana as she gets older. *She loves Auntie Carol* But I hope that I make you proud in all of my future endeavors and will take you with me everywhere I go. We will meet again my sweet Carol. I love you so much... Rest in Peace.

My Dearest Carol
The last time I saw you was at my 50th surprise birthday party. I was happy to see you then and love the gifts you gave. You were always so thoughtful to think of people when you traveled. You always brought me back a little trinket. Oh, how I really appreciated our friendship:) I loved our vacations to ST Augustine and New York even though the plane ride was pretty scary. That was actually the first time I met Ronnie. He picked us up from the airport. We couldn't wait to get off that plane. I think I even kissed the ground.lol I can't believe the disease took you so fast from us. I wish we had more time , more trips and more movies hehe.. 50 shades of Gray. I know you are free of disease now and at peace. But I know and you know I know ; you are with Ronnie again and all your loved ones. Possibly boating and driving around in your sports car on the other side. I miss you and your sweet soul will always be remembered until we are together again my friend. RIP

Farewell, my sweet friend until we meet again. I am saddened that this progressing disease hit you instantly and shorten your life so quickly. You are now gone, and I often lie awake at night when everyone is asleep and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheeks.
I reminisce us talking, laughing, dancing, acting while singing those GE songs. Our girl's night out and getaways to the Big Apple, St Augustine, Disney stay-cations, cruises and more. You have always had a big heart and have been there for me, through my ups and my downs. You always encouraged me to go above & beyond and inspired me to where I am now.
I can't thank you enough for being such a great friend and sweet auntie to my son. My husband, lil Alex and myself will miss you but, you will be in our hearts forever. Rest in peace my friend.

My dearest friend Carol. I knew this day would come, that I would have to say goodbye. It's so painful for me to grasp that this horrible neurological disease, shortened and took my friend's life away. You've been here with me through, my ups & my downs and it's hard to process that you are gone.
It seems just like yesterday, we were either on an adventure, training, laughing, singing, dancing, talking or helping one another out. We have shared so many beautiful memories together from our stay-cations, girls night out, yummy dinners, spending holidays with my family, going to plays, roaming around Epcot or Magic Kingdom in the blazing heat, that the list goes on and on.
As I told you before and I will say it again, you have been an amazing friend and Aunt Carol to my son. You have shown me how to be strong and to live life to the fullest. Your beautiful heartfelt words of encouragement and advice, is why I am in this career role today. I thank you for everything my friend and you will tremendously be missed by my husband Alex, lil Alex and me. We will love you always, RIP.
