    In deepest sympathy to Chuck, Cindy, Caren and all the grandkids. Aunt Carole was always the life of the party, with her infectious laugh and high energy. We will miss her terribly. May she rest in peace.

    Chuck, Caren and Cindy - I have missed her beautiful smile and infectious laugh for a long time now. She had always been such an important part of our lives. Stepping in and taking care of 3 children, 8 and under, while our mom was in the hospital recovering from an emergency c-section. Not a small feat for a 20 year old. I loved her so much. Her top priority was always her family and making everyone of you an important part of her life. Love to you all.

    Our sympathy and prayers to all the family members!  Carole always had that sweet smile and friendly personality. She and Chuck were great backyard neighbors for a number of years.  Rest in peace, Carole!
