    I am so saddened to read of your family’s loss. I first met Carol when she volunteered at school, when Matt and Dan were small, as she always jumped in to help out in our Computer Lab or Media Center. Her smile and can-do attitude as a volunteer and PAC member helped us get through some tough budget times and I truly valued her advice and dependability. Although I had lost touch with Carol, I am sure those same traits were well-known to her family, and will be sorely missed. I grieve along with you on the passing of such a beautiful person.

    We are shocked and deeply saddened by this life cut short. It makes playing that silly card game at Chanukah such a precious memory to be cherished. We will always smile remembering Carol laughing so hard she had tears streaming down her face.
    Scott, Matt, and Dan she loved you with every fiber of her being. Being a wife and mother – creating such a wonderful family brought her such tremendous joy.
    Carol will forever live in our hearts.

    Love & Peace,

    This is just a terrible shock. I have been close acquaintances with Carol for decades as her brother Fred is married to my youngest sister Nancy. Scott, Matt & Dan, it’s so hard to put these saddened feelings into words, but, at this time, all I can say is that our hearts go out to you; and, also to our extended family: Fred, Nancy, Phil, Jess & Kelly. This is a very tough, incomprehensible loss and Carol will be so deeply missed. Personally, I will miss all the “lively” conversations and laughs with Carol at all the happy family gatherings throughout all the years. Thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    So shocking and so sad for the whole family but especially for Scott, Matt and Daniel. It was such a pleasure to see her laughing at Chanukah, we all enjoyed each other and all our quirks. I don’t know a mother who was as devoted to her kids as my sister in law was,you boys absolutely completed that lovely lady. You gave her so much joy, she shown with it.
    Carol will be so very much missed, by all of us.
    With love, and sympathy.
    Marla, Si and kids xox
