    Carole, Allyson and I grew up together with the rest of our families. We have such good memories of living in the “circle“. We have stayed friends all these years. Carole was a great friend and a ray of sunshine that always had a smile on her face. She had a sweet soul and she will be truly missed. Thank you, Carole, for your friendship. I have lost a great and true friend. May you rest in peace dear friend!

    Carole was such a sweet soul. I knew Carole through my sister, Faye. They were best friends growing up , and throughout their lives. Their friendship was a once in a lifetime kind. I was privileged to have spent a little time with her also throughout the years . I grieve with Faye , and all the many family and friends of Carole. I know she is spreading her wings!!♥️♥️♥️

    Correction to my earlier comment. My sister Faye says that she and Carole rather met in 5th Grade at St, Joseph's (not in high school as I earlier wrote). ... Sweet Carole and her family have been dear to our family too since then. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to send her my love before her tender passing.

    Carole and my six-year younger sister Faye became best friends at Mount de Sales High School in Macon. I am grateful for all the love they gave each other and how they were there for each other unconditionally all these years. A great accomplishment to have and be such a treasure! I enjoyed a personal connection to Carole, too, and appreciated her sweet smiles and the Happy inside her lovely soul. May she rest in peace and may her life continue to unfold in spirit. cid:D500E6D3-2005-495E-BF4B-20E56332AD28

    Allen and family….I recently read a quote “You’re no longer where you were, but you’re everywhere that I am.” And she is…Carole has been in my heart and my soul since our friendship began when we started the 5th grade at St. Joseph School. Together we opened a door and entered into a friendship that celebrated life. We felt each other’s joys and helped carry the weight of each other’s sorrows. Carole was loved by so many for her sweet spirit. She was the true definition of Friend….ever present, ever true and endlessly loved. Rest In Peace my Sweet Carole~~~Fly Free

    Allen, my love, thoughts and prayers are with you each day. Jenny, your mother meant the world to me. Allyson, thank you for sharing your loving sister. Carole was everything to me. She was the sister I chose in life, she was my counselor when I hurt. Carole was my coach when I derailed, and my guardian when I felt lost. But most of all she was my best friend.
