I truly feel blessed to have known Carol. I met with her every week in recent years for her organ lesson, which she looked forward to and thoroughly enjoyed. Her happiness playing the organ always made me feel happy! She was a remarkably upbeat person, with a very positive personality, and had a unique gift of making one feel special and loved when in her presence. I thank God for having known this saintly person, and want to extend to her children and extended family my heartfelt condolences. May she now experience the fullness of eternal life in heaven! (Carol, I miss and will continue to miss you!)

Carol was one of the very first people I met on my spiritual journey back in 1987! We studied together with Megan Grey Wolf and learned how to make the Native American medicine Shields. Over the years our paths would cross at Reiki share groups and other various spiritual gatherings.
Carol had a heart of gold and was so devoted to growing spiritually. I know she touched many people in the spiritual community here on Cape Cod.
No doubt she is now home and has once again become pure love & light. May God/Goddess and the angels bless her.
To Nancy and the rest of Carol's family, I am so sorry for your loss. How blessed you all were to have had this beautiful spirit in your lives.

Nancy, may your mother now soar with Electra and sing with Angels!
She was such an inspiration! I thank her for the time spent together.
Comforting love to you and your family,

We have known Carol since we built our house here in Brewster 35 years ago. She was a kind and caring person, and we are sure that she will be missed by all those she touched in her life. Cheryl & I enjoyed talking with her in the summer at the pond beach, and all seasons, as she often passed our house during her walks around the neighborhood. She was an avid gardener, and when I had no room here for some bearded iris (that my mother gave me from her NJ garden) she gave them a home in her garden. Those mauve iris are still there, even though my mother and Carol are now both gone.

Joe and I are so sorry for the loss of your mom. She was a wonderful neighbor for almost 20 years, and we are going to miss seeing her puttering in the yard, walking up to the mailbox and stepping through the bushes between our houses just to say hello. We know how much she loved living on Long Pond and how many great memories she had of all of the kids growing up here in the summers. We heard many, many happy stories. Our warmest thoughts are with you at this time, and please do not hesitate to let us know how we can help with the house or anything else.
