Her zest for all things Spanish also led her to such destinations as Spain, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia, and Mexico, where she enthusiastically immersed herself in the language and culture and cultivated many lifelong friendships.

I just learned of Carol's passing - I am shocked and sad. Friends for the past few years, I admired her entrepreneurial spirit, and, supported her in bookkeeping matters. Last night, when I drove past her home, I thought how I had not heard from her for a few weeks. Now, she is in a different home. Wishing she is totally resting in peace, and has her dream after life of the Colorado mountains in Heaven.

Years ago at Millersville, I remember telling Carol that if I had a sister I would want her be just like her. In the heat of a crisis, she always had the perfect words of encouragement and of understanding. Twenty plus years later, the same rang true. She had a kind, beautiful soul and she will be deeply missed.

My most heartfelt condolences to all of her family and friends.

I met Carol two years ago in August when I worked at the Staples on Lehigh Street. When I first met her; I knew she was going to be my friend. There was something magical and wonderful about her when you met her. She always had this personality that was bigger that the galaxy itself; so humble, loving and a kind kindred spirit. When I had a bad day working at Staples and she came in to say "Hey Jay." I knew that my day was going to be awesome because of her. To her laugh and smile; she was the one true person that could make me laugh from my soul. She was a rarity in itself.

I found out last night that she passed. She was someone special and someone close to my heart. She will always be a part in my life. I'm going to miss the person that could make me laugh when I had the worse day and vise versa. I'm going to miss her laugh, her smile and her; lighting up the room just by coming in; no smiling needed ... But when she smiled, she was definitely the life of the party.

My deepest condolences to Carol's family and other friends. We knew one-another from church and a meditation group from where we effortlessly became friends because of Carol's cheerful, outgoing and passionate nature. I am blessed to have had time to spend with Carol and will always remember her, our deep conversations on life and love, that sparking smile and her good heart. She is, undoubtedly, adding a wonderful spark to heaven...

So sorry to learn that Carol has passed away. She was a bright and friendly face at the Tuesday evening Spanish Conversation group. She always was willing to help those of us with less fluency in a kind and patient way. My sympathy to her family and friends.
