Change is life's only constant, and this process continues for most, if not all, our lives. You must make one of the most painful adjustments in life right now. Honestly, it won't be easy, but your mother left you with the correct tools to succeed. She was the perfect role model. Even though we knew Carol for many decades, we learned more about her from reading your touching obituary, and those photos showed how much she truly enjoyed life. We remember times when Carol would say or do things to make us laugh. That was Carol...the silly, strong-minded, and honest person we knew. We loved that most about her. I trust you will keep her legacy alive and will continue to make her proud. You are your mother's daughter. Many have already witnessed your success as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, and co-worker. You are the person you've become, because you were raised by a wonderful mother. Your Mom will always be resting in the corner of your heart, and no one can take that connection away from you. Death may physically separate us from our loved ones, but we still feel their presence and love. Faith that you will one day be together again will be your guide. You and your family continue to be in our thoughts. We love you!
