"I knew Carol as a fellow Holy Innocents parishioner. Carol and my Mother Gloria sang together for many years in the church choir. Quite recently Carol was speaking to me about my mom, telling me she missed her choir buddy, and all the good times they had back in the day. Carol was a feisty, delightful, and caring lady. She will be greatly missed by all who loved her. "
