Carol I were neighbors when we both lived in Sterling Hts. Our daughters were good friends. Carol and I used to do some walking in the summer. We put ID and five bucks in our shoe and we never knew what we were going to do with it ;but secure having it. One, very hot walking day, we decided to stop in at the local tavern. We asked the bartender how many beers can you buy for 5 bucks?" Its happy hour, 3 beers. "
Okay. we got sort of crocked on the 3 beers and decided not to walk home. We called Gary, to the rescue. I will miss her. She was a lot of fun. May God Bless xxoo

Dear Carol, Even though I'm only a cousin, saying good bye to you is not very easy. You see a cousin is part of a childhood that can never be lost. We are impossible to forget and we are those rare people who when we ask you, "How are you?", we wait to listen. As time passes we drift apart but a cousin seems to always stay close to your heart. So, I', not going to say good bye, just so long. Life has been beautiful, but Heaven is gorgeous. Love your, Cousin Geri!!

Art and I have been blessed to know and love Carol and her family most of our lives. When I was young I have fond memories of Carol as my sister Jackie's best friend. As adults, the best friends Jackie and Joe and Carol and Gary became inseparable. Later, Vicki and Chris joined the group and the rest is history. The bond these couples and their families shared and the great times they had are something to envy. Sometimes Art and I were lucky to share in the good times with them. For the girls, a MARTINI or two was mandatory! We treasure the conversations and laughs we had with Carol. She had a way of making you know that she truly cared. She also really knew how to tell it like it is! She was one of a kind and will be greatly missed. Our hearts go out to Gary, their beautiful family, Carol's brothers and sisters and their families, the besties and all who loved her. Love you the most Carol!

My very sincere condolences to all of you. Although I only have a handful or two, of fun memories with her, I will miss seeing her. Especially because I know how much all of you are going to miss seeing her. My heart breaks for all of you and I pray you will find peace with her passing, knowing she is no longer suffering. I love you all, Tanya. (I worked for Dino, and with Sandy, my dearest friend).
