She was a wonderful lady. I will miss our talks at water aerobics at the YMCA. She was full of wisdom which she readily shared.

Carol will continue to be loved by us all. She came to Emily's & Katie's events, always with a smile, some laughs, and full of love. I enjoyed sitting with Carol and listening to her great stories. And Steve thought she gave the best hugs. Memories will keep Carol alive in our hearts forever. Rest in peace my dear and God Bless.
Amy, Steve, Emily, and Katie Hickey
