Just shy of 30 years since knowing Carol , when I came to the house as a guest with Karen...I always felt a warm welcomed and grace of radiance from her. Both Carol and adoring husband David, these wonderful souls, were in attendance on my most significant day ... my marriage to Laurence back in 1999. It is with my great sadness that Carol she has left us. I am supremely glad to have met her.

"When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of a storm
There's a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
For your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone"
Oscar Hammerstein II / Richard Rodgers
