Carole was a friend, having met through Scribblers of Brevard. I remember her warm smile, her friendly personality and her quick wit. I loved her poetry and stories. She wrote a lot about cats which she was very fond of. I will miss her until we meet again.
Carole was among my first Fl Alanon friends. I enjoyed her gems and wisdom and Scrabble games! I wish her peace. She will be deeply missed.
I will miss her. She was a faithful friend.
You will be missed. Rest In Peace my friend.
Carole and I were neighbors, and.she was a wonderful friend. Carole was a member of Mensa, and we loved to watch Jeopardy together, where she knew the answers to many questions. She was also very kind to my mentally disabled son and made him beautiful quilts with cats that he loved. She donated many items to NAMI for him.Carole was the Westwood Condo president many years, and because of her, we have a beautiful clubhouse and beautiful lights at our entrance, lovely sidewalk tiles and a refurbished hot tub. Carole was hardworking and extremely honest. She adopted a golden stray cat who became Ginger and gave her a loving home. I miss her so much. She was like my sister and an aunt to my son. When I look out my window and see her condo, it breaks my heart. There will never be another unique person like Carole, although she was greatly unappreciated by some of the neighbors here. She made everything she touched more beautiful. She knew the extent of her illness and bravely faced it until the end. She was a tough lady although in pain every day for the last year, and would say 'It is what it is." I miss my trustworthy confidant and her beautiful blue eyes and Massachusetts accent. She cannot be replaced.
RIP Carole, Our friendship was brief, but I knoe you were loved by your family. You will be missed.
I've known Carole for 21 years. She had so many gems she had heard from various meetings. Since Carole was a writer, she took the time to document and write four pages packed full of gifts and insights to discover and bring peace to us all. Her love of sewing and giving to others brought all of us a gift of a handmade book bag. She took the time to present us with those gems. We always went to lunch after our meetings and Carole's favorite was the $4 Hamburger meal at Bernard's Surf. She and her wisdom will be missed by so many.
May she rest in Peace.
Carole and I were friends for almost 30 years. I could always turn to her for support, guidance, and friendship. We played cards once or twice a week for a very long time . She shared her poetry snd stories she created over the years - she was sentimental and loved Sherrie and just and her grandchildren so much - she might have sounded abrupt at times, but she was soft and felt deeply inside. She loved her cats - ginger will be lost without her - and her tiny creatures from fish to gerbals to tiny mice . They gave her such joy and pleasure. I remember her shopping endlessly for gingers favorite food which she couldn’t find anywhere but finally stumbled across the mother load and bought as much as she could. They were great companions. I will miss Carole very much ... after years of physical ailments, ....... Peace my friend 💕
