My sweet "baby sister", you were the bestest and funnest cousin a guy could ever have. You smile lit up the room and there was never a dull moment when "Auntie Carol" was around. Our families shared such great times together and when your Dad, Mom, and Brother left this world you became a "sister" to Karen and I. Although you had to leave to join your heavenly family, we will never forget the love, laughter, kindness, and joy you brought to all who knew and loved you. We love you and will see you again someday when we all gather with God in celebration of eternal life. Until that day, Rest In Peace in God's love and comfort.

We were fortunate to meet Carol through Katie and David Fox. Carol was a truly beautiful person. Her laughter, smile and bubbly personality made you feel good just being around her. She will be missed. Heaven has gained an amazing soul.

Carol was such a blessing to everyone who came in contact with her. Her smile, laugh and sense of humor were contagious and "fun" was her middle name. We loved her and our office has not been the same without her.
We miss her every day at Upstream as she is irreplaceable !
Our prayers have been with her, her family and all of the many friends that supported her these last four years.
Rest in peace Carol Ann!

Oh Auntie Carol (AC), you will be missed dearly. So many great times we had...from you and Grandmom taking me to see Jaws 3 in 3D, to meeting me at the airport for lunch when I was on a business trip, to Christmas in Orlando...you touched so many people’s lives and they became better because of it. You were a wonderful Aunt and friend. Rest In Peace...

I will always remember Carol's beautiful smile. She threw the best parties-impeccable hostess and fantastic cook. Her house was always a fun, comfortable, relaxing place to be. We'll miss you Carol! Katie, thank you for taking care of Carol-you are an incredible friend!
