I was honored to have Carole as a second mom in my life. I’ll always remember her with the fond memories of a strong, caring, and loving woman.
I remember one time in particular when she told Lee that she had made his favorite peanut butter cookies for him and seeing his face light up. Her face lit up in return showing the deep bond of love that they shared. While I had only gotten to know her what seems a short time, I came to know the depth of love she had for her family and was privileged to be counted among them.
Mom, you will be loved and missed greatly until your family joins you once again.

My Grandmother was a hardworking woman who wasn’t afraid to say what was on on her mind. She taught me that once you start something you must finish it. She liked to say that your on a boat in the middle of the lake and it’s better to row to the end of the lake, rather than go back wasting your energy and starting over. She was a fantastic listener and always gave great advice to everyone even if it’s something that they may not like or want to hear. She had a lot of patience, and stayed calm no matter the problem. Lastly, I just want you to know that I love you and Rest In Peace.

On Thursday October 8, 2020, at 1005 AM, the only woman that has truly loved me unconditionally from the start - my mother, Carole, passed away. She was always there for me - even those times when I was a jackass... she never stopped loving me. When I left on a bus to go to Basic Training, I still see her, standing there in the bus depot, crying because her little boy was leaving to become a man.

Even now, as a man, selfishly I wish she was still here with me, not in pain and I already miss her, joking with her; laughing together. She is no longer suffering from the breast cancer and it's ravages on her body. She "fought the good fight... she finished the race." I believe that she is now walking hand in hand with Christ, happy and smiling and running barefoot through Heaven's fields like a little girl.

One day, Mom, your little boy will join you. Until then, my heart breaks for you being gone... I love and miss you.

Mom was one of the greatest warriors I've ever known. Now, she's standing before the Face of God, with all the dignity, respect, and rest she was created by for...

Greatest Mom a girl could ask for. You were and will continue to be the glue that holds this family together. I only hope to be half the Mom to Johnathon that you were to all of us kids growing up. Thank You for your tough love; always fighting for us and having our backs! You will always be a part of Us.
