    Carol was a true friend. She was always there to listen and support. She always gave of herself even when she was hurting. The world seems a little more lonely, but I know she is in heaven looking out for those she loves, and will be there to welcome us. Her pain is gone. I just thank God, I had the privilege to know her. Becky

    Carol”s humor and wit was outstanding always brought a smile to our faces as all true friends do. This relationship will be greatly missed for now but not forever, just for a little while. Scott

    It’s been too long since a laugh was shared or a win was celebrated. We shared a vacation with twisting and hula-hooping in the Jacksonville sun. RIP dear cousin.
