I got to know Carol seeing her at my place of employment more than a decade ago. I loved talking to her and got to know her well over the years. She was funny, sweet and very engaging. We had a great deal in common and the "Hi Carol, it's Carol" never grew old. I will miss her, her perpetual smile and her infectious sense of humor. My heartfelt condolences goes out to her family, friends and her co-workers whom she loved dearly. Our many conversations will always be dear to my heart.

Sincerely,
Carol Edwards
