I moved to Fairfield in the middle of high school and was fortnate enough to land in Carol's english class. She was a creative, caring, joyful and enthusiastic teacher who made my days in her class bright. She was and continued to be an inspiration to me. May God bless you as you so blessed others.

I was saddened to learn of Carol's passing. We shared godparents. I have many fond memories of Sunday dinners with our parents in Bridgeport. May she rest in peace.

My deepest sympathies to Carols family at this time of her passing. We grew up together in our Church and shared many events in our early years. Our families Sunday lunches together and many other church related activities. May your memories of Carol and the support of family and friends carry you through this time of your grief.
