Bob, Greg, Cheryl.....

Angi and I are deeply sorry for your loss of Carol, I remember as far back as the times mom and dad would bring me over to your townhouse in Hightstown (or you would spend time over at ours), and we would watch tennis on TV together. And I remember as recent as the time we all spent together in Hilton Head (still many years ago). Regardless of the moment my memories always recall Carol as a vibrant, happy, and caring person.

Again, our deepest regrets as you go forward without her. Our thoughts are with you, and hope you find comfort in each other during this time.

"Cabo Carol", as I lovingly refer to you my sweet friend...

I am so grateful for the memories we made in Cabo and how you egged me on to hang upside down at the Giggling Marlin :). I enjoyed our heart to heart conversations, although we only met in 2015 it felt as if we had known each other for years... I felt an instant friendship with you as we are both "Jersey Girls". I will miss your sarcastic wit and sense of humor, and especially your hysterical text messages to check in on me, the most recent one being at Christmas... I'm one of so many who will miss you! Until we meet again in that big beach in the sky... walk in peace, Sweet Carol. We will always have Cabo!

So many memories. Carolyn , as special as they get. Every time we were together Carol made it an time to remember from her off beat humor to her caring and loving nature. Always ready to have fun or to offer an encouraging word. I will miss my girlfriend and my partner in crime the rest of my life. God Bless You my dear friend. All our love to Bob, Cheryl and Greg

Love Joe & Barb Carbone

Bob, Cheryl, Greg and Family - I am so sorry for your loss. I was very saddened to hear the news. My family is sending love and prayers your way. We have kept Carol and the family in our nightly prayers (that we say with our children) since we heard. I have great memories of Carol from the time I was a little girl to just a few years ago when we enjoyed time together in Cabo. I remember our joint family trip to Hilton Head (must have been almost 30 years ago) and Carol's smile while we sat by the pool watching the ocean. I'm glad she was able to meet Jason as well. She will be missed.

We are still in shock and filled with saddness about Carol. Pazzazz will not be the same without her. Her loud mouth walking in the door causing trouble and yelling at Rosy. She will truly be missed. We saw her on Friday and we talked about going to Mexico in October and it's just so sad she is gone. She got her hair done at least once a week and then always came in again during the week just to chat and start trouble n yell at us. She was truly an amazing woman we loved to be around n always made us laugh. Rest in peace and we are so sorry for your loss and prayers go out to her family and friends.

Dear Bob and family,

My heart is broken. Carol was such a fun person to be around. I know you will all miss her terribly. I’m very hopeful that she didn’t suffer with too much pain. Love and hugs to all of you and to Carol in Heaven.

I will always remember the time Carol came to visit Fran and me. Since we had not seen each other in many years she told Bob she wanted to make sure she could recognize me at the airport because she didn't want to have any old Leroy picking her up.
I made a sign up with Leroy on it as a joke. Carol had a great sense of humor and we laughed about it. Ever since I was known as Cousin Leroy.
We will miss her very much.
She was a genuine person and we will have fond memories of her.

Robert, Cheryl and Greg,

Words cannot the shock and sadness we feel.We know this is a bewildering time full of hurt and sorrowful questions. Rejoice in the memories and try to be happy knowing that she is at peace and waiting for the day when you are reunited together again. Until then, hold on to your faith and trust in the Lord and his plan and all of us that are so blessed by His Grace.
