I was so sorry to hear from Kim that your beloved Carol had passed. She was such a giving soul may she Rest In Peace in the bosom of our Lord. Her kind and generous heart lives on in all of you. May God’s blessing surround your family in this time of need. Your family will always have a special place in my heart and prayers. Know also that my thoughts are with you today and always.

To me Carol was always my close friend Kim‘s mother. I enjoy the occasional interaction at family gatherings such as Thanksgiving. She and her husband had such a loving connected relationship and it was an honor to experience one such as this.
I have been a neighbor and friend of the Campos family for many years. Enjoy the occasional borrowed items and the soft warmth and caring, sharing characteristics of this loving family. So if Kim is a indication of these exceptional qualities my respect and admiration go towards a woman that can create such a loving being. Her loss will be felt and I’m sad to miss the gathering but my heart and prayers go out to everyone connected to Carol and her family.

I’m sorry for your loss and read about Carol's passing on Facebook. It’s funny how a teachers aide out in playground or in the classroom can have such impact on one's life. She was especially significant since I loss my mother at a young age. Carol represented one of the many women in my life that shaped me to the person I am today. She always had a smile on her face.
Be proud that she changed countless students she met, even the redhead on Adin Street. :-)

There are so many memories to share of my "Auntie Carol" that I wouldn't know where to begin, but her laugh was contagious, she always made us laugh, they were the best of friends with my parents, playing cards, taking trips together, and spending time in Florida, the Cape, the beach and they shared so many good times, from anniversary parties, to clam bakes in the back yard. When I visited them at the Cape, she never wanted me to leave because she enjoyed reliving our memories as kids! Linda, Kim, and Uncle Brad I love you all and am so grateful to have you in my life, and I know how much Auntie Carol will be missed! Love Susie
