Mary Jane and I were so very sorry to learn of Carol's passing, and we offer our sincerest condolences to her family and close friends. Carol was indeed a warm, friendly and beautiful person. I have many fond memories of our days working together at USF; I shall never forget her warm, pleasant smile, her dedication, work ethic and infectious laugh; and, I am forever indebted to her for her role in introducing me to the world of academic administration.
