Carol was such a lovely person. I bought quite a few beautiful things from her while she had her ADAC location. I cherish them and think of her often. She kindly gave me a copy of one of her favorite books called Sicilian Twilight. I appreciated her thoughtfulness so much. My condolences to her friends and family. She was an inspiration and will be missed!

Carol Ann was so smart and so talented but mostly I remember her smile, her sense of humor, and, yes, her teasing me all the time . She was such a good friend to Sandra and the other friends she left behind when she moved from New Orleans. .She and Hugh have such a wonderful family, my heart goes out to all. Carol Ann, Ahavat Sholom , left too soon.
