Hi girlfriend! I miss our almost nightly texting, the serious and the funny. Rick and I were
honored to be your prayer warriors. Love you , buddy.
I am so very sorry for your loss. Carol was such a beautiful person – and the bravest woman I have ever known. Carol and I worked together at Park View and became fast friends . I shall miss her wonderful smile and loving presence. God watch over you.
I’m so sorry for the loss of one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever known. She was there for me when one of her best friends, my wife, passed away several years ago. They’re together with their Cairn Terriers in Heaven.
Bets and Hank Curschman
It’s a sad time for all of us who knew and loved this very special person. She was a rare combination of beauty, intelligence and love all wrapped in one unique individual. We, and many others, shall miss her very much.
God bless you, dear friend.
Carol and I went through chemo together many years ago, in fact meeting as across-the-hall roommates at Hillcrest Hospital. Her style, grace, kindness and wicked sense of humor never failed, and through the good, bad and pretty along the years, she never lost any of it. Be at peace, my friend, and let’s plan on meeting for dinner together again.
Carol will be missed by so many who knew her here. She will be welcomed by the heavenly hosts as her final reward forever.
I am so sorry for your loss. I had the honor of working with Carol at Park View Federal for many years. She was a special person and will always be remembered by me fondly and by everyone else that worked with her as well. Rest in peace Carol. Until we meet again.
Carol was a great and wonderful friend for 40+ years – since meeting at Case Western University. RIP and My Best Always!
Oh no! How can this be? She wS younger than I was! I remember how concerned about her brother she was, yet, he outlived her! She has joined her mother now. I tried to leave a message earlier?, but I do not see it. Perhaps I did not succeed. We used to enjoy leaving messages for each other when I took care of her mother. She was so lively, so vibrant, it is hard to think of her as gone! God bless her family. I am sure you will miss her. She loved you all so dearly! My new email is elizcoss50@ gmail.com.
