Carol, I was devastated to learn of your death. I cannot begin to imagine how much your family will miss you.

It has been many years that you have been my co-worker and my friend. You were not just any kind of a friend though. You were always there to help me during the challenging and tough times, and when I was at a loss to know what to do. I don't know what I would have done without your help and guidance.

You were always available, always willing to help, always ready to solve any problem, and with your infectious humor, it was the highlight of my day to spend time with you.

I am grateful that our paths crossed, and I will always love and remember you.

Well, Carol and Bill are one of my favorite couples ever. I have worked with Carol for 15 years and she has always been one of our #1 go to people to get something done. But I most remember her (and Bill's) hospitality when a group of us IBMers would descend on DFW, and they would have us into their home for a little social happy hour and the shepherd us along into the evening to be sure all had a great time. We'll miss you Carol, but you'll live on in our lives as a wonderful memory of how a great person should be. Love ya. (Go Buckeyes!)

Our thoughts and prayers are with Bill and the entire family as well as Carol's many friends. May your fond memories, God's loving embrace and support of family and friends help you through this difficult time.

Carol will be remembered very fondly by all her coworkers. She accomplished incredible things through her intellect and "can do" attitude. Carol was very pragmatic and yet always welcomed new ideas and approaches. She was always pleasant with a dry wit and an infectious laugh that had a positive effect on everyone around her!

Carol will be sorely missed, but never forgotten. We are so fortunate that our paths crossed. Our heartfelt condolences go out to her family and friends. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Carol is such an integral part of our lives at IBM BCRS. It is simply gutrenching to know I won't hear her laugh and her generous lively stories. Her ability to make you look at things from a 360 degree perspective is unmatched. My heart goes out to her loved ones and my colleagues who will feel her loss for a long time. My memories of Carol will be cherished and not forgotten.
