So sad to hear this news. I lived near Carol & her family growing up, we went to Saint Roberts together. We had so much fun as kids together.. We used to swim in her garage pool all summer. I remember how smart she was, and her take charge spirit & her beautiful long blonde hair. Such a loss. RIP Carol. You will be missed.

Words cant express what a wonderful and dear friend that I have lost. Still so hard to believe. I will miss our talks and get togethers for lunches & dinners. It still feels like I lost a member of my own family. Heartfelt condolences to Jeff, Mary Lu, Paul, Amy and Sister Nancy. So glad that I was able to work with her and stay close friends afterwards. She will be missed by me beyond belief. I was very thankful that she was such a dear and loving friend for many years that are never long enough.
