  1. Auntie Carol, we will have a big hole in our hearts now that you aren’t here with us. I will always remember all of the good times we had at Cape Cod, how you taught me to play all kinds of crazy card games and serious ones like poker and setback, but most of all how much you cherished and cared for our sons Chad and Mitchell. I will never forget all of your tag sale treasures. You will be in our thoughts and prayers forever. Love, Kathie, Chuck, Chad & Mitchell

  2. Dear Marie, Alan & Peter: I was extremely saddened when I heard the news about Carol. Please accept my deepest and sincerest condolonces and I will put you all in my prayers. Sincerely, Robin Williams Wade

  3. I was so very sad to hear about Carol. I worked with her for two years. She was a good friend & coworker. I will miss her very much

  4. Please accept my deepest sympathy on the shocking loss of Carole. I worked with her for ten years at Moody School and it will be very strange not to see her there when we return to school. May you be be comforted by memories of her great spirit and happier times. Patty Kukor Moody School
