Nana - I love you more than words can ever begin to describe - you are my best friend - the warmth and compassion you exude along with your amazing outlook on life has touched all that know you and beyond - every day I think of you - and of our adventures - whether it be simply "vegging" on the couch

Gary, you may not remember me but I graduated from Tampa U with Carole and went that summer with her to New York. Just before her death, I found her on facebook, sent an email and she rresponded saying she was ill, on her way to Jupiter with you and that she had had a wonderful, happy life with you. We lost touch over the years, but I often thought of her and enjoyed her friendship in college. I am sorry for you and your children and the pain you must feel. She was a beautiful girl with a great personality who made my college days more enjoyable. With sympathy, Wanda Overman Carter.

Glenn, Susan, Gregory, Brooke, Gary, Melissa and Scott & Peter,

There just no words to express the sadness I feel for your profound loss. Carole was a blessing to all of your lives, and you to hers. We pray every day for your comfort, and know that she is smiling down on all of you. As a close friend of Susan, I have grown so fond of all of you, and so enjoyed all of the wonderful stories Susan has shared about your family and the love that you all shared for Carole. Continue to celebrate her life as her love will only grow even stronger in your hearts! "The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God."

Love, Carrie & Tom Hastings

They are not dead,
Who leave us this great heritage of remembering joy.

They still live in our hearts,
In the happiness we knew, in the dreams we shared.

They still breathe,
In the lingering fragrance, windblown, from their favorite flowers.

They still smile in the moonlight's silver,
And laugh in the sunlight's sparkling gold.

They still speak in the echoes of the words we've heard them say again and again.

They still move,
In the rhythm of waving grasses, in the dance of the tossing branches.

They are not dead;
Their memory is warm in our hearts, comfort in our sorrow.

They are not apart from us, but part of us,

For love is eternal,
And those we love shall be with us throughout all eternity.

As you know, Carole was dear to our hearts. Her many friends at Jupiter Cove will miss her very much. She loved to play Mar Jongg and for that I will always thank her for teaching me. My love to each of her family members and remember, we will have her in our hearts forever. Faye Mathis
