Carol was a member of a group of cousins who grew up on Booster Road in O’Fallon. I love living down the street from them and going to their house to play baseball, ride bikes and just get together. Carol was a bright star as we were growing up among us. Toby, as Lynne called you, will be greatly missed but your star shines even brighter today to watch over your family. Love you and I will miss your smiling face.
I loved Carol the moment I met her. She made me feel so welcome to her family and into her home. Our heart’s are broken but so thankful we had Carol in our lives for many year’s.
I hate saying goodbye to you. You have been in my life from the day I was born. You’ve been a good friend and I love you. I will miss you Carole. Fly High!

I love you Aunt Carol. I know my cousin is happy to have her mom and Nick is happy to have his grandma while Shawn and Bridget will be sad to be without you. I’m glad I got to see you not too long ago and let you know I love you. You’re going to be missed by all of us. I’m sorry for not making it tonight. I love you all so much.
Melissa (aka, the pretty one! ) That’s for you Bridget!
Our deepest sincere condolences to all of Carol’s family. Carol was such a lovely lady. As a young adult I remember she just loved to enjoy life. I know her family was so dear to her and they will miss her terribly! I pray you are comforted knowing you will see her again one day. God bless you with comfort.
