What a wonderful lady! Carol was so devoted to caring for her husband and her extended family here at Heartwood, always willing to take that extra step to make someone's life more comfortable. She was such a kind, generous, & thoughtful person.
There were many times when just a bit of her motherly advice or a simple gesture would go a long way. She was always so energetic and full of life when she would stop down at the reception desk, I would look forward to her visits – so excited to share something new but never wanting to impose with a question or a concern.
Thank you Carol for being a beautiful friend. You will always be in my heart and continue to touch the hearts of those who were fortunate to have known you. You will be GREATLY missed.
