  12. June, my heart is heavy for you and your family. Your family’s inclusion of Carol in your daily lives is a model for us all. We’ve missed her in recent years but have great memories of our antics with Carol and her wonderful interactions with us. All the indignities and JOYS. At times we laughed to tears. I will smile through the tears for years to come. GOD BLESS Larry ~ Celeste and Family

  13. Mrs. Brown and all the wonderful Brown family: It was with a great deal of sadness that I learned about Carol’s passing. She was special in every sense of the word. She made the practice floor or game night brighten up with her presence. I think that Carol was a teacher to many of us with her positive attitude. I think Coach Brown welcomed his daughter into heaven with a loving embrace and they are talking about old times on their own special cloud. While I know that this is a great time of sorrow for you please know that Carol deeply touched the lives of all that were privileged to know her. Stan Maclachlan

  14. Mrs. Brown, and the entire Brown family, I just wanted to personally say that I am sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you.

  15. Mrs. Brown, Leslie, Paul, John and families, It is with heavy heart that I send my sincere condolences. Carol was indeed a very special person to me in my early years at Erich Day Camp. The memories that you all provided are priceless; and many that I reflect on and repeat to my own children often. Please find comfort in knowing that my family and I share in your sorrow yet find joy in the memories. The Brown and Erich families can and should take pride in knowing that indeed hundreds of families are indepted to you, for all of the time, dedication and love that you taught and shared with us. Thaughts and memories of Carol will continue to inspire me and bring a smile to my face forever. Skip Birbarie and Family
