Carol was one of the most caring and compassionate nurses to grace the walls of Leonard Morse Hospital. She was loved and respected by all her peers, collegues, and patients.
Her presence on this earth was truly a gift as she touched so many people with her kindness. We will all truly miss her but will always remember her wonderful sense of humor and love of life. Thoughts and prayers go out to her family who she loved so very much.
