  2. Carol,
    You were the sweetest mother-in-law a woman could ask for. Always available with a smile, a laugh and an encouraging word. I can still see that twinkle in your eye when you laughed! You loved your children and grandchildren with an unwavering love, and everyone who knew you could see that. Thank you for showing me what unconditional love looks like. You ride high on that mountain for now, we will get there to see you soon!!!
    All my love!
    Cecelia 🥰

  7. Carol, I’ve known you for forty seven years. We met in 1975 when my oldest child was 10&1/2 months old. You’ve always been very loving and kind to me and my family. You were my second mom, always there for me. Always there for my daily phone calls, sometimes twice a day. I will always remember those days, the last time I talked to you, you told me that you weren’t going to talk to me ever again because, I wouldn’t repeat something to you lol. I still hear that, and you laughing about it. We told each other that, we loved each other and that meant the world to me.❤ I’m going to miss you suga. But I’ll never forget you! You will always be in my heart and on my mind. God’s Speed ❤ rest easy. Love your other daughter. Missing you 💔😥. Sheila London.
