Carol was my friend and I will always cherish my memories of that bodacious smile, FUN times, and gastric sensations. How I wish I could have one more lunch with her! I can’t even imagine the grief her most beloved family is going through. She was an incredibly dedicated, wife, mother, daughter and friend. She will be sorely missed. May her memory be eternal.
