  • Jerry and Family, Please accept my condolences for the lost of Carole. I met Carole 20 or so years ago while working as a scheduler for Nurses N Kids; new to the workforce and overwhelmed Carole took me under her wing. She taught me the job and more. Carole was a leader a mentor a wonderful soul. I know first hand how she took care of other people. She loved her family and looked forward to the Stewart’s Family Christmas Party’s. We shared so many conversations and laughs; oh the laughs. I will always be grateful to have had her in my life. She was very special to me. She used to say “to know you is to love you” ; ditto dear friend. Ditto

  • Dear Family & Friends of Carole,

    Our heartfelt condolences go out to all of you. Our last conversation with Carole was back in April, and we believed she was going to be fine. I hope she knew how much everyone thought of her, even her clients who only saw her occasionally at tax time.

    We have known Carole for a number of years, and she always did a great job of helping us through any issues that we had going on. We were blessed to know her, and will keep her and everyone who cared about her in our prayers. Please take care.
