I hope that the memories will carry the family for years to come. If it wasn't for her i would not have the wonderful husband I have now. She was such a smart funny intelligent person. I know I won't have anyone like her in my life
She will be greatly missed by many. I was so looking forward to her spending time in Florida
It was such fun when the 3 sisters would get together peeps and all
Love and prayers for the whole family

Carole was my BFF for 58 years. I owe my career to her. She was the smartest person I knew. Carole was always there for me. I'm glad she had her family around her. We could always make each other laugh. We had such fun. I will miss her so much, but I will cherish my memories. My heart goes out to her family.
