You were one of my best friends! We had so many wonderful times at Red Hat luncheons and shopping, and when we had our Tuesday night dinner parties. I will miss you. RIP Carol.

I can look back on my childhood and realize how lucky I was to have you for my mom. I have had some of the happiest birthdays, holidays and family vacations that any child could ever have. No matter how much time passes, I find that these memories never go away or fade. They always shine brightly in my heart. With love and pride, I will always hold you in a special place...the home you have in my heart. Forever and always, your loving daughter.

In life you may be fortunate to know one or two people who lived every second of their lives making people around them feel special, and do so by living a life full of joy. Aunt Carol and Uncle Roy were such people. Our lives are richer having had them in it. While they celebrate a joy those left behind cannot fathom, we will miss them.
