My Mother was kind and loving to her son and her friends. She was cruel and sadistic to her daughter.
She had countless opportunities to create a positive lived experience for me and in the end she chose cruelty.

So sorry about Carol. My sympathy and prayers to the family.
Carol was a wonderful friend and we had lots of fun times. She could always make you laugh, even if the joke was something that had happened to her. She was a beautiful, kind, good hearted lady. Will miss her.
