My condolences to the family for the loss of your beloved Mother and Grandmother.

Carol was one of the first people I met at Beth David. She helped me get through my own bout with breast cancer. She was kind to everyone.
I will miss her warm and generous spirit.
Unfortunately, we will be away, so I will miss her funeral and shiva. She will be in my thoughts.
