Carol you taught me to be honest from your brashness in being direct. From your father you inherited the party and importance of socializing and giving back in the community...it was tough to watch Grindad go. Your mother Alice instilled the hard working, do it right and not procrastinate humble life philosophy we lived by. I hope you are all having a beer together. Thanks for the wonderful childhood experiences provided from yourself and Wil. It has always been inspiring having you guys as role models for business and as well in generosity. Love u - nephew

Hi Sis
Still miss you so much and think of you every day – sometimes with such sadness that my heart hurts.
But at times when I remember the fun we had together over the years - it makes me smile.
I find myself talking to you (on the off chance you can hear me) just to fill you in on my life, the kids, the grandkids and of course when I need help with a dinner party.
Many things I miss sharing with you - but I'll always treasure the memories.
Love ya

My name is Dee Kaufman. I represent a group called Angel Stitches. this is a ministry of Aldersgate Methodist Church. We meet weekly at the church hall to sew, knit, and crochet for premie babies in the area. Carol joined us in 2005.

She came with a passion to make blankets, sweaters, booties, and hats with pom poms. She did two complete sets every week. Her work was precise and beautifully done. She was perfect.

After our meetins she was ready to go to lunch and have fellowship with us. One of our ladies commented that Carol was the only person she knew who could pull off wearing shorts, tee shirts, and sandals, and her diamonds.

Angel Stitches was part of her daily life not only while crocheting at home, but when she traveled. She had a special carrying bag and crochet needle. And she always had her Joann's coupons in case they frove by a Joanns store, they could stop for more yarn. She had a favorite crochjet stitch and used it most of the time. It was called the seed stitch, small but elegant. Another of our ladies said, "Carol, you are spreading seeds of love" and she just smiled and said "yes, I am."

She brought smiles to our day relating tales of the trips and cruises she and Wil took. Her pictures and stories took us to places we will never see and our horizons were made broader by her travels.

She did send her love through her work to God's finest and somewhere in our area are hundreds of babies who received this love and warmth.

We will miss Carol but we are so thankful she passed our wat. We fellow Angels will never forget her.

I remember arriving at MBYCC for the first time. It was a long two and a half days journey. We were tired. We drove up to the gate. there we met Jimmy, the guard. "Did you register at the office yet?" He asked. "Be sure you do it early tomorrow morning. We have rules here... No noise after dark, no towels on the railings, no jumping in the pool, etc."

The gate opens and we pulled into the parking lot. All the condos looked the same. Which is ours?

Then a voice and a smiling face... "Hi, my name is Carol. your condo is right over there. When you get settled come to happy hour on the fishing pier at 4:30 and meet your new neighbors." That was 10 years ago.

Every season since then we see the new recruits arriving. They are tired and have never been here before. All the condos look the same. Then there's the voice and a smiling face... "Hi, my name is Carol. Your condo is right over there. When you get settled come to happy hour on the fishing pier at 4:30 and meet your new neighbors."

Fast forward to this week. TI can just visualize Carol arriving to Heaven. It's been a hard journey. She has never been there before.

The gates open. Then there's a voice and a smiling face. "Hi, my name is God. Welcome to My Home. Happy hour starts at 4:30." Oops... Scratch those last words. But you get the idea.

Carol, we miss you!!
