    Moe, Lotti and family. My heart hurts just looking at this picture of Carol. What a wonderful, beautiful and caring woman. Everyone loved her. She will forever be part of my memories. She holds a special place in my heart. The years we spent at Mac’s bar and all she put up with. She was always smiling and made us feel so welcome. I am so sorry for your loss Moby. You had a special mother who adored you!! May she rest easy and watch over you always. She truly was a kind spirit with a heart of gold. Although I haven’t seen her for so long, I already miss her. My deepest and sincere sympathy to all that loved her. God Speed and RIP Carol! Thank you for the most wonderful memories that I will treasure forever.

    Its so hard to begin. I can only say that I was so lucky to have a “second” mom in Carol since I was 5 years old. Hearing her say “Mac” was the best. She is going to be sorely missed. Mary and I’s weekend visits on Hays St, to traveling softball games, running around the bar with her and Dad, vacations in Florida, just so many many loving memories of her for Me, Dina, Caitlin and Logan. Love you so very much, and now you can go back to yelling at dad. Hes been waiting for more ginger ale. Your “son” Dan

    Carol was “old school” in the very best sense of the words. She was unbelievably hard working, kept a spotless house, and always was dressed perfectly. I never heard her say a harsh word about anyone in all the years she was my step-mom-in-law. She was a very caring woman, who took wonderful care of her late husband “Mac”, who had many difficult health issues. She was a loving and generous step-mother and step-grandmother. She had amazing patience with people. Carol was fun loving, and always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. Rest in peace, lovely lady!

    To the family of Ms Carol you have my deepest sympathy and I will keep your family in my prayers. Ms Carol was so sweet I spent many breaks at Walmart talking and crying with Her after the passing of my mom. She helped me through a few tough days. She will be missed by all that knew her. Rest In Peace Ms Carol.

    Carol was loved by many. To know her was to love her. We were fortunate enough to have this amazing woman as a member of our family. Moe, you were lucky enough to have her as your Mom and our hearts break for you. She was always thinking of and doing for others. Her presence always brought smiles and happiness to everyone around her. We will miss her more than words can say…

    Mo, my thought and prayers are with you and your extended family. Your mom was an amazing person with a big smile and an even bigger heart. My memory of Carol was her smile and great laugh, she always kept me going. She holds a special place in my heart and in my memories.
    Her kindness, compassion, whit and sense of humor brighten everyones day. She always smiled the biggest when she would talk about you, and how proud of you she was. Blessed be the child who has the love of a mother like she loved you.
