Carole and I shared a major life event, the marriage of her son Rob and my daughter Ashley.
I knew her to be a loving mother and a kind mother in law. She will be greatly missed.

Robert, I want to extend my sincerest sympathy to you and your family. I graduated from HS with your Mom. Your Mom reached out to me in January when I lost my partner and it meant so much to me. She was a special person. Keep your memories flowing and your Mom's memory in the forefront.

Carole, where do I begin...Eastway Lane and Montree Court I guess! We’ve been friends since Kelly & Robbie (as he was then) and the neighborhood kids played together and went to school. I couldn’t believe the news when I heard it. I will miss our texting, you were such a sweet person and this was a shock. RIP my friend! Rob I’m so sorry for the loss of both your parents so soon. Take care.

To Rob, Denise, Bobby and family; probably like you all I am still in a bit of disbelief. Knowing Carole since 1st grade, she was a wonderful kid, teenager, wife, mother and friend always. I loved her laugh so much. She was always there for me. I will remember her always. Much love to all. Carole, now at least you're back with Don. Love,

My special, dear friend, Carole. It is so hard to find words and I am still in shock over your passing. I know you are at peace with Don and your family, but you were gone too soon. I thought we still had some more living, laughing and fun times ahead of us together; but God had other plans. I will hold on to all those fun memories and special times that we had together and be thankful that I knew you. I will miss that big laugh, especially the laughs that brought us to tears. Please rest dear, kind friend - job well done on earth. When I get to heaven I will look for that beautiful red head with the "Boston" accent that I loved to hear. Love you so much!

Carole was a such a delight to be around. A great friend and neighbor. I will always remember Carole riding her precious Freddy around in her golf cart, because it made Freddy happy. ☺️ All the neighbors loved to see them ride by. Carole was just as beautiful inside as she was out. She will truly be missed. I am grateful for the fun times shared with Carole. Deepest Sympathies to Rob, Ash and family.
Sincerely, John and Sharon Black

My dearest Carole, I just don’t know what to say! I can’t believe this has happened. You are one of my closest friends; what fun times we had over the years. Donnie and I will always cherish the weekend visit we had a couple years ago with you and Don at your new Oak Island home. I will miss our texts and phone calls; love you so much! Rest In Peace, my dear friend!

My dear friend Red, I will miss you so much. Your texts and phone calls always brought laughter. Your last text to me Saturday evening was “love you”. And you know you were loved right back. Even though our jobs with SSA was to say the least, stressful, we found time to play some pretty cool pranks. So My Partner in Crime, I love you, I miss you but I’ll always remember you with a smile. Fly high my red headed high!

Carole was my mother in law. She always accepted me, and made me feel welcome every time we were here. We’ve been living with her for the last year in order to stay out of NYC...
she and I both tested positive for Covid on the same day... and I had really hoped she would pull through, but instead we lost an amazing woman. We will take care of Freddy, and share memories of her with everyone we meet, so that she lives on in our memories and heart.

Rest In Peace, dear cousin. This picture is Carole about 1960 when she visited us in Virginia. She is the redhead (of course) in the blue plaid dress. For those who may know them, that’s Barbara Sarofeen to her left, and Janice and me to her right. As kids and cousins we were quite close, and we always kept up with one another on social media and shared many Virginia Sarofeen Christmases with Don and Carole over the years. I’d like to believe that is home now with Don for all eternity. Heaven is a better place now that they are together again.

With deepest condolences to her family and friends.
