Carol was truly a special person who touched the lives of so many people throughout her journey of life. The sincere love, compassion, kindness, friendship, and warmth she expressed daily to everyone were a blessing to behold and a unique gift to this world. If there is an angel on earth, Carol is that angel and we are all better for having her in our lives. We will miss her deeply and cherish each moment we had with her. As Carol always said, "Love You More!"
