Mommy, I miss you so much. You were my rock and my life will never be the same. I know you are free now and making everyone in Heaven smile with your love and humor. Until we meet again, I love you more.

I only had the pleasure of being around Carole a few times, but from those meetings it was clear she was a feisty lady who spoke her mind and had a very quick wit. She made an instant and lasting impression on me. My deepest sympathies and condolences to her family.

Al, and cousins Sharon and Sheila, my condolences. I have many memories of good fun times with Carole as kids visiting at our grandmother's home. I am glad we got to share some grown-up good times too.
