To the family of Caroline, I am blessed to have had your Mother in my life, she changed me for the better. She was the smartest woman I ever knew, and she instilled a great foundation within me. I feel very fortunate to have her as my friend. I will always miss her and will think of her often. It will be, with tears in my eyes, that I accept my diploma. Because without Caroline it would not have been possible. Rest in peace my dear friend.
