My daughter, Crystal and Caroles daughter, Jennifer have been friends ever since they were 9 years old, so Ive always felt like Carole was part of our family as Jennifer still is. I will miss her smile and her laughter. Even when things werent going so well, Carole always seemed to have nothing but positive words. My heart goes out to Jennifer and the rest of her family. God bless.

Man. I will miss you Carole. You always knew what to say to make everyone smile or laugh even if you werent trying to. I sure did enjoy your company every time we would all go out and eat.
Its hard to believe you are gone, but it is comforting knowing that you are in Gods arms. You will be deeply missed. We all love and will miss you so much
