In life, we are gifted with the presence of beautiful women. They comfort us. They laugh with us. They cry with us. They fill our lives with incredible joy. They are our wives, our mothers, our sisters, our daughters…she is “My Auntie.” I am thankful for our time together. God Bless…your loving nephew Steve

Miss Carol,
I will forever be grateful for your kindness and generosity.
You were the beacon of light in such a dark period in my life. Your smile warmed the room and my heart. Our talks will stay in my memory forever.
I loved you and will continue to love you and your memory, always.
You welcomed me with open arms into your family and always treated me as a member of that family, for that I can't thank you enough. You will be with me always, I love you.
May you rest in the sweetest peace.

Miss Carol, we are heartbroken without you. Without our constant beacon of graciousness, of kindness, and adoring laughter it seems the world is now a little less bright. The joy you brought to us all will guide us, comfort us, and uplift us for generations to come. Thank you again so much for the gift of my sweet Gabriel. Nothing has ever been so truly unexpected or will ever be so completely adored. Friends like you come into our lives, stay as long as they are supposed to, and change us forever. Gabriel and I will love you that long, forever (plus one day.) So long for now, but never goodbye. Lori & Gabriel

My auntie Carol always had open arms and a open house for me and my family and her and my mom were best friends for 60 years even after my mom and dad (her brother) divorced they stayed close and kept each other company. I will miss her as she joins my mom and dad xoxoxo
RIP Auntie

Auntie Carol was one who touched many lives. Took care of all never expecting anything in return. She left a bit of herself in each life she touched! My memories I have of her will comfort me as I mourn the loss of a beautiful soul. She will be missed. Love from "your ugly duckling" I love you Auntie with all my heart! RIP Deborah xo
