I have known Carol since I was 16. She and I and Dagmar and Joyce ate lunch together in high school every day! I am so sorry to hear of her passing My condolences to the family.

Carol and me at my wedding. She wore that lovely purple dress and had the most wonderful smile. She was not just my friend, she was my sister.

She was not just my best friend, she was my sister. She and I were as close as you could be without being related by birth. She was the kindest, most stubborn, gentlest and most strict person I ever met. She always had a twinkle in her eyes and a wry little smile. And I'll never forget her favorite story. The "TaileyPull". I love you sweet Cyb.

Thank you for being my friend, Sister, and Brother. You were the Best!!! I will miss the times we met at our Household events,and broke bread and talked over things with each other. Love, Amy Woolard/aka Ardena Wildflower

Blessings unto you and your many Family members of blood and choice.
