Carol A. Gordon
November 14, 2020
My fondest memories of Carol center around Christmas. Carol loved Christmas and all the trimmings. It would take multiple days to put out and display all of her favorite decorations. The village, all the figures, and a beautiful big tree as a centerpiece. I think of her every time I enjoy a Christmas moment. My other favorite moments are thinking about enjoying the slot machines at Foxwoods. We had a favorite machine type I think it was double diamonds. Anyway she loved that so much and it brought her great joy.
Love always, Lisa R
