So sorry for your loss...I have spent many fun hours with Carole at Simonis...She came over to our house one time years ago for a bar-b-que and the first thing she did was jump into the pool, clothes and all...oh my, such a character for sure...fun times...talked on the phone a few months ago and she was planning to go back into real estate and we, along with Mr. Temple and his son, were going to go to the Italian Athletic Club for lunch but she cancelled because she forgot she had a prior appointment for the same day...needless to say, we never had that lunch.....Roz Poggio, Stockton....

Dear Carol, I'm in shock that I can't ever see or talk to you again. We shared so many things---laughter, stories, parties, and Many fun times. Be in peace, my frienf, for I shall see you someday.

I will miss Carol's daily calls, our lunches and dinners. Most of all the special occasions on her patio with such nice people .
Carol was one of a kind, and a true friend. Always ready to help her friends in anyway she could. Carol so loved her beloved animals, Mr Max, Squeaky, Moma Duck, Handsome (Moma's duck's boyfriend) and Moma Goose and we can't forget the Bickersons. Oh what fun it was to sit out on the patio and watch Carol's animal friends and chat.
I hope next year when Moma Duck and Handsome comes home that they will have someone like you waiting for them and take care of them like you did.
We will all miss you my dear friend, rest in peace. I will see you again.
Love Cynthia Capps
