I remember with fondness the visit to Uncle Joe and Aunt Mary Agnes's farm as young children. Carol joined all the girls in the big dormer to sleep at night and we would have a blast visiting and laughing until falling asleep after those long days playing around the farm and excursions around town. She was a sweetheart then and grew up to be even sweeter, caring about others and sharing her love and life in beautiful and meaningful ways. What a great legacy to leave for her children, family and friends. What a blessing to have experienced presence her in our lives.

Rest in peace, Carol. I will never forget you and all the fun we had back in the day. Was so excited for you when you got into fostering and to hear the stories. Miss that we didn't see each other in the later years but were always in my thoughts.

What I loved most about Carol was her quick laughter. You could walk into a room, she'd be laughing, and you would laugh along, even if you didn't know why!! What a lovely soul.
