  1. I was very fortunate to know Carol and become close friends with her in the past 3 months. She touched my life greatly with her sweet, charming and appreciative nature. She will be missed more than words can say. We use to light a candle at prayer time at HH. I will never forget her. I pray for peace and comfort to her family and friends. Much love to you the very reader of this.
