Carol was my cousin and we lived one block apart on South 5th Street.  I got to hitch a ride to school every morning after she came over to Central, like I did, from St. James.  Her dad always drove us and it was a life saver in the winter and also in nicer weather as I was never a morning person and this helped start my day a little easier.  Carol and I were goodfriends also and I always got together with her whenever I went to Grand Forks, which was almost every year, to keep up with each others lives. 

Carol was very devoted to her grand daughter, Zoey, and took on the responsibilities of caring for her since she was a toddler.  She became a grandmother and a mother at the same time.  No easy task as all of us mothers can testify to.

I shall miss Carol and our visits over the years.  We are all having a difficult time of understanding how this could happen to someone so young and beautiful, a very nice person and a wonderful daughter to her aging parents.  It is difficult to lose someone so special in ones life and I feel it deeply and sorrowfully.  Goodby Carol.  I love you.
