  1. So very sorry for your loss, your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
    My very favorite memories of Carol is when she was the attending nurse when I gave birth to my oldest child Alyssa. Carol was an excellent nurse and so encouraging. We shared in excitement that she too was soon to have a beautiful grandchild being born. Emma and Alyssa have had plenty of opportunities to share in the years following. Carol will be greatly missed. Love to this beautiful family and prayers for strength as we grieve her loss together. ❤️
