I am so sorry for your loss. Carol was a lovely lady; I enjoyed playing mahjong with her and chatting on the block with her (she was a neighbor in Jupiter). I did not know her for a long time, only two years, but I liked her very much. I saw her and Robert taking a walk the day before she died, and I was shocked and saddened at her untimely death. I thought she had been doing well. We will miss her in the neighborhood and at mahjong. Rest in peace, Carol.

Our thoughts and prayers for the Pinto girls.
As a young girl I looked up to Carol who seemed to miss the school bus on a daily schedule so she could come to my house and watch Bandstand with myself and my mom. She tried so hard to teach me to dance but being 10 years younger that was hard. We bonded again in the late 70’s when we both were pregnant. Time marches on then Shore Rd became the place Carol and Tony built a house 2 doors from me and the fun continued. We had so many laughs . We spent lots of time in Fla so it was only natural that we would buy in the same development as Carol. She was my closest family member and I miss her phone calls and so many laugh. R I P my dear cousin. Love Nancy and Richard
