I am so, so sad to hear of Carol's passing. I worked with Carol at a Broward County School. She was one of my first mentors as a beginning teacher. I am a better person and teacher because of her. Please accept my sympathies.

I am so sorry about Carol's passing. I worked with her at the Broward Schools. I have known her for many years. She was always there to help me with my caseload and offer suggestions and give me help. She was a fabulous SLP and will be sorely missed. I am shocked by her passing. Please accept my sincere condolences.
