Carol, You were a dear freind, I wish I knew, we only spoke in the fall about you moving here for the winter. I could not get back in touch since. We had some good years together as friends. Love and miss you my friend.

It is thru times like these that we realize how precious life is and begin to appreciate the best of life. My sister-in-law seemed to have known this when I first met her while working at Hanscom AFB. Ever since she has always been positive and warm. We will all miss her great warm smile just for a short while as we will see you again when we all are with the Lord.

Our Auntie Carol was bubbly and always smiling. Every time she saw you, she always wanted to know what was going in your life and how your family was.

Throughout the last few years, she remained brave and determined. She has showen me that you shouldn't just give up, you should fight for want is important to you.

I was lucky enough to be able to visit her and my uncle, when they were together. I always remember her showing me her closet with dresses in with the price tags still on them, then saying dont tell your uncle!!

The last time I saw Auntie Carol, we went to see my Uncle play in a gig. I remember my husband and I saying how amazing she was and she wasn't going to let anything get in the way of her enjoying herself. Auntie Carol seemed to enjoy her night and we all enjoyed being with her. Very special times.

Our thoughts go out to my cousin Aaron, Carol's husband Steve and my Uncle Steve. May they stay strong and remember all the good times

To Carol, a Brave Beautiful Brit, and her loving and devoted family: Love, Peace & Prayers from the Nash family at hospice: Maureen, Kathy, Margaret, Marilyn and "Mom".....we will never forget the sight of her loving and devoted family wheeling Carol around "outdoors" in the cold December weather outside hospice in Merrimack. Carol's beautiful shining smile and "light" will stay with us forever. What a blessed family ~ Maureen Nash

Carol was dearly loved especially by our mother Mott and was very much a member of the Farmer family in Kidderminster. She remained a family friend during her illness and we have lovely memories of Carol and Aaron; as she visited us at Christmas. She will always be remembered...
Fondest love from all the Terry family.
