    Carole, I’m sure you will be missed by all. My condolences to your family. You were a wonderful and cheerful person. You will be joining your other family member now in heaven. When you and Franny got together, you always made Pat and I laugh. You two were a pair. Now you four, Pat, Franny, Barbara, and yourself are back together (the four angels!!!).I will surely remember all of you and how you all touch so many people throughout your lifetime here on earth. Rest in Peace. Love, Paul

      Thank you so much for your kind words Mikee it means a lot !

    I miss our morning calls before work, you always answered “yeah…”we would talk about nothing and everything. I still laugh at your voicemail ending with “I can’t find the pound.” You loved “girls night out” and playing cards with your friends telling me numerous times “can you call me back I’m playing cards” LoL Our vacations to Chincoteague we’re always an adventure! Through all the happiness and sadness you were always there to laugh or cry with me ! I always teased you about all the angels you collected and now you are one. You fought one hell of a battle with cancer and gave us all 3 + more years to be with you. I love you mom ❤️ You will always be in my heart !
