“Carol was a beautiful soul. She always took time to listen to me give me advice and she always knew when I was not feeling well. I worked with her for a year an a half. I'm so very sorry for your loss. She was such a great woman. Always spoke so highly and full of love about her husband kids and Grand and great grand children. My heart is broken. I love you carol! ”
