    I am so sorry to hear of Carol’s death. She was the lynchpin for my Mother’s last years and did so much to make her comfortable, to run the household, and to arise to rise to the occasion regardless what came down the pike. I remember her most fondly and will be forever grateful for the help she gave Mother. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Carol was a great lady who will be sorely missed.
