A special thanks to Merle and Angie Schultz, and Leah Mott for all their kindness and support.
Special niece, Kim writes: My aunt was a free spirit with a passion for life. She enjoyed golfing, walking, cooking, travelling to Europe, working at the office, and loved to win at ping-pong. She had an interest in learning new things, and was determined to do well. She loved all her cats, and said she'd be happy in heaven being with all the late pets of the world. She enjoyed spending time with her husband Arnie, her nieces and nephews, friends, and with her kindred spirit Mary.
Carol wasn't just my aunt; she was a very special friend to me, taught me to do my best, to enjoy life, and not to worry over simplicities. She always said to hang onto happy times; we had so many. I feel so blessed to have known her. I will cherish her forever. Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
