Dear sweet Carol was such a loving friend. Since my family was back East, Carol sort of adopted our family and we were included in holiday celebrations, school activities, volleyball games and so much more. Once when I was recovering from spine surgery, she brought me a milk shake late one night and cheered me up. Carol was always ready to lend a hand, give a hug or just listen.. I loved her and cherish the wonderful memories of times shared. She so loved her family and friends. We are blessed to have had her in our lives.

Cousin Carol,
Had I known the last time I saw you was going to be the last, I would have hugged you that much longer. Looking at the photo below that Michael posted, I can close my eyes and hear your Infectious and joyous laugh. I have so many fond memories growing up with you in them. You and Don were always there for my mother when she was trying to raise 3 kids on her own. I remember coming up to visit you in Cerritos with Mom and the boys, it was always a fun time. A family gathering would never be complete without you there. You will be greatly missed by so many.
God just gained another angel. ♥ May you rest in peace ♥ ~ Katie

You were such a family oriented person. I remember you always around for various holidays and family parties. I also remember a great family vacation it the Colorado River. When in conversation, you always made me feel like you truly care about my life and what was occurring in it at the time. You will be missed and I think it was in Devine order that you and cousin Don moved up to Colorado when you did. It’s just reminds me that god always has a plan! Rest in piece.

Aunt Carol,
I’m hoping you can hear this, this letter is from Kris, your niece. Sometimes you call me Krissy.
There isn’t a memory from my childhood that doesn’t include you in it. You taught me how to swim and I spent countless hours reading books in the front living room in the Cerritos house.
As a child I spent every birthday with you. I spent every Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving.
Every 4th of July at CPE and all those days I can remember being my best memories as a child.
I remember playing on the computer or video games at your house. The first time I ever used a microwave to make chips with melted cheese.
I remember loving to go over to get everyone together for the World Series and Super Bowl and New Years Eve once in a while.
But as you can see you were a very big part of my life. The years that are harder to remember as the older I get and farther away it seems, my memories as a child.
But one thing i can remember is all those years were happy and joyful and you were apart of that. Thank you for loving me and always supporting me even when I was a bit crazy as a teen. I just want you to know I love you and I’m asking Scott to give you a kiss from me and tell you I love you.
You will always be in my heart and I wish I could be there.
Love always, Kris ❤️

The latest memory I have of Carol was when Sandy and I traveled with her to pick up Clifford at the airport for Randy and Terry’s 25th Anniversary party. We were three cousins giggling together as we found our way to the time share and then headed to the airport.
Laughter then. Laughter whenever I saw her.
She will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. May the memories you have of her fill your heart and help sustain you through this difficult time.
Cousin Doll and Leigh
