To the family: We are so very sorry to hear of your loss......It is never easy to lose someone we love, especially our mother. While I did not personally know her, I know my mother in law - (Nancy Place - Carol's cousin) will miss her greatly! Being the last of her elder family members, they have enjoyed sharing with each other many a conversation, memories, and much laughter! Carol was a wonderfully kind and generous person. Nancy shares many of those same traits, joy, generosity, spunk, style, and love of family, friends!." One could never say that she did not live her life to the fullest, or not enjoy each day of her life, and everyone in it! What a great legacy of love ...... God bless

I remember dancing with Carol at Justin's wedding. She was filled with such spunk and joy and we couldn't believe that she was almost 100! If only we all could live with half the life and love this woman had and shared with this world...what a world we would have! :) Know that Brenda and I are sending all of our love and sympathies to all of you during this difficult time. Keep on dancing, Carol!

Dear Diane, Nancy, Tom, Dennis and all of those privileged to be part of Carol’s life. Our most sincere condolences on the passing of Carol. She was indeed a special part of the lives of those who were enriched simply by knowing her. Her memory will never flicker or fade in our hearts. Everyone marveled at her length of years, but it was not long enough for this marvelous woman. May her memory always be for a blessing. Bernie and Jane Finn

Dear Diane, So sorry to hear that Carol has passed. She was a very nice and gracious lady, and I will miss her friendly smile. It was fun looking up from the 3d green at WHCC and seeing her wave. You were lucky to have had her for so many years. My condolences to you, Dennis and your family. Sincerely, Jim Trebilcock

Tom, Diane, Nancy and family my thoughts and prayers go out to all. The caring and love you showed to your mom was an inspiration to all. Carol was such a wonderful lady and I will miss getting strokes from her when we played golf. Gary G

Carol, or Gramma, as she was known to most of us in Florida, was a truly a remarkable woman. Our thoghts and prayers are with the family.

Diane, Nancy, Tom and family: I was saddened to hear of Carol's passing. She lived a long and wonderful life. Carol was always very kind to me and very complimentary of my golf game. I will always remember her offering us drinks and snacks as we putted out on #3 at WH. I hope Carol and my mom will now have time for some bridge. My best to you all. Robin Omer
