These were the beautiful closing remarks at Carol's funeral from her pastor. "The faithful, caring, respectful love for others that was the hallmark of Carol Ann's life has not ceased. It is now intertwined with the love of God that beckons us, promising that, even if we feel covered by the darkness and that the light around us has become night, He shall make it as bright as day."

I was so saddened to learn of Carol's death. I first met Carol Ann years ago when she moved to Evansville and joined St. Paul's Episcopal Church choir. I had known her sister Sharon who also sang in the choir, for many years. Carol Ann was such an asset to the choir; she was such a caring person and a joy to be around. She will be sorely missed by so many friends and family.

Those of us who knew Carol Ann through the internet still recognized her friendliness, empathy, willingness to share her musical knowledge, and courage in the face of medical setbacks. I extend my sympathy to her family and friends, especially Suzy, who spent so much time with her at the hospice.

Carol and I were colleagues in the Weavings office 1991 to 1995. Many fond memories flood my mind: exemplary employee and colleague, computer savvy, well-organized, tenacious, devoted to her church choir. "A fight to the finish" was her dressing on each endeavor. Beautiful person.

Steve, Gail, Stev(ie) and Debbie, I am sorry to hear of your Aunt's passing. I remember as kids you guys were always so excited when you heard she was coming to visit. She was a very sweet lady!

Carol and I worked at the Upper Room at the same time and we became friends easily. She was a great lady and friend. She always 'saw' to it that I had Susan Boyle's CD's and book. And, oh, how she loved making costumes for her grand-nieces, she would share pics of them. We emailed each other quite a bit. There are still many friends here in the Nashville area and beyond who will, I know, keep Carol in our hearts and memories. Susan and Misha have lost a great friend.

I never got to know Carol but I am sad that our forum has lost such a knowledgeable and devoted fan of Susan Boyle. She will be very much missed. My sincere condolences to Carol's family and friends.

Carol and I became online friends through the Susan Boyle community. She was a great comfort to me at a time when I was dealing with cancer. I send her family and friends my deepest condolences. Rest in peace, dear Carol.

I only knew Carol online, but she always impressed me with her musical knowledge that she was always willing to share. She came across to me as a kind person with a lot of empathy for those in need of a kind word.
