Messages of Condolence

  1. Janet P condolence:

    My dear sister. We were always like the song “Side By Side,” never one without the other. My best friend!

  2. Walt Kowalczyk condolence:

    Carol, as always with life things changed after we grew up and our families were no longer just across an alley and a street from each another. But, even after we grew older it was always a joy when we would talk. You were a wonderful cousin and friend who will be missed and always remembered.

  3. Denise S condolence:

    I’m heartsick at the passing of my Godmother and Aunt. I always remember her sitting and playing with me at the top of Grandma’s stairs when I was little. She always gave such kind-hearted words of praise and support. I’ve both smiled and cried thinking back on them. Love you and miss you, Aunt Carol.

  4. Elizabeth Holtz condolence:

    Aunt Carol ❤ What a beautiful life to celebrate. Thank you for all the childhood memories you unknowingly gifted us with. One that sticks out and shall never fade is listening to Cinnamon Bear in Grandpa’s car on our way to the museum. We had a blast that day! Thank you for being one hell of an aunt. Watch over us, we miss you terribly. Until we meet again…I love you.

  5. Jean Garner condolence:

    cousin, friend and gifted RN
    Our childhood was so very good
    so good, so good, so good
    I’ve been inclined
    to recall those days as best I can
    Enjoy eternal rest in the arms of
    our Lord

  6. Donna C condolence:

    Carol, I was blessed to have you as a cousin and a friend. I will miss your kind and gentle nature and your sweet smile. You will always have a place in my heart.
